  1. Why does the city not just turn Ridge Ave into a 3 lane street? One lane in each direction with a turn lane in the middle. We fiddle with various intersections every couple of years and nothing ever improves. I don’t have much hope for this new project either.

  2. Thanks Lighthouse Keeper for the visuals of all the construction projects going on around town. I’d like to suggest a similar column devoted to the public art in the city. Ben Blount’s new mural at Chicago and Washington looks great, but some of the other murals under the tracks and in other places are in need of repair. Our public art beautifies and humanizes the cityscape. It contributes to our community’s identity, fosters community pride and sense of belonging, and enhances the quality of life for its residents and visitors. I’d like to see more investment in art in public spaces, both to maintain what we already have and to add to it.
