Amazing enough that Oak Park, il has to pay for something that is traffic related but falling concrete is a worthy cause. Having this happen at such a major intersection is totally insane. The only thing I can think of is that local construction may have added in the cause of falling concrete. The cause and effect of new construction’s impact to existing structures is not something that is readily thought of.
But as old as some of the structures are in oak park, il this should not be an afterthought. Safety concerns and all that to residents, tourists, pedestrians and drivers alike who use this thoroughfare as a means of travel. From point a to point b, there is a lot of thought put into aesthetics but not into practicality. Hopefully this is a wakeup call to head future projects into that line of thought, need over want.
