Stressed about distressed streets

I am impressed and amazed that our village can remove mature trees, tear up the ground beneath and beautifully repave same in less than two weeks.

In the meantime, many of our side streets do not even get patched, our main streets don't get attention (Oak Park Avenue), and the residents on North Marion continue to put up with noise that sounds like we're living on highway rumble stripes.

Has anyone else noticed the backup on Madison when it was down to one lane? Lookout side streets!

The 500 N. block of East Ave. is a particular favorite of mine, especially when I want to give my car's shocks a good workout.

It defies logic. And clearly illuminates village priorities.
