Mayor Daley's Safe Bridges?
Many years ago, Mayor Daley was trusted with the management of the taxpayer's money to make sure we have better roads, better schools, safe schools. Mayor Daley was trusted to put the taxpayers first, not to make his friends millionaires. I as sorry to report, much money in Chicago went to Mayor Daley's pet projects, public property was sold to raise millions more to pay debt. Mayor Daley is raising taxes and look at his idea of great infrastructure improvements. Many of Chicago's steel bridges have the steel rotten to the core from salt and weather. Many repairs include encasing the bridge bases with concrete to delay important repairs. I must confess, I get very scared when I hear a train rumbling overhead and I am stuck in traffic. many bridges sway to much when I am waiting in busy traffic. This bridges is rusting and the concrete is falling off. This bridge in at the intersection of Pershing (39th) and Ashland. Too much money was spent downtown, we need to fix the roads and bridges. I hope Mayor Daley does not blame this problem on the Federal Government. Photos by Patrick McDonough.
