    THIS IS FOR A LOOSE, RATTLING MANHOLE NOT A POTHOLE. THERE IS NO FORM SUBMISSION TO CHOOSE FOR A MANHOLE. DON'T SAY "WE DIDN'T FIND A POTHOLE, CASE CLOSED" BECAUSE THERE IS NO POTHOLE.

    PROBLEM: LOUD, RATTLING MANHOLE COVER

    The manhole is located directly outside the alley that runs parallel to Hermitage, in between Byron's Hot Dogs and the building at 1733 W Lawrence. The manhole is directly in the path of Eastbound traffic on the south side of the street. I have included a photo from Google Street View.

    Either the manhole cover is not properly fitted to the manhole itself, or the manhole interior has degraded and the cover is sitting unevenly. The result of this is that every time a car drives over the cover, the cover will tip to one direction due to the weight of the car's front right wheel, then bang back down on to the cover, then happen again with the rear right wheel.

    This loud banging happens constantly - easily several thousand times a day, given the volume of cars on Lawrence - and perhaps even tens of thousands of times a day if it's a Cubs game or a neighborhood event.

  • 2355 W Addison St Chicago, Illinois - North Center
    Hole in pavement is about 7 inches in diameter. Upon looking down into hole there is a two food drop to sediment. The surrounding area under the pavement looks washed away so only the asphalt is holding itself together. There is no structure under the asphalt. Couldn't take picture because of the traffic
