110th Street and St. Louis Avenue: I came across this rough sidewalk in the Mount Greenwood neighborhood on the far southwest side of Chicago. Multiple schools and businesses are right near this, putting the public in danger. Any patron walking or riding a bike on this could be greatly injured.

Please Call 311 to report any potential dangerous sidewalks in your area and keep the public safe. Tweet @redlineproject your pictures and we’ll credit you.

105th Street and Pulaski Avenue: This treacherous stretch of sidewalk spans for almost a mile. There are hundreds of people who walk or have to use a wheelchair on this path everyday. Whether it’s going to school, the store, bus stop, or even home, everyone must endure this. This sidewalk is especially dangerous because one wrong step could lead you into oncoming traffic.

Please report unsafe sidewalks to 311 and keep your neighborhood safe. Tweet @redlineproject your pictures and we’ll credit you.
