Patching potholes on Forest Preserve Drive. Chicago Illinois. Monday, January 5th, 2009., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Welcome aboard ddie's Railfan Page, from the city of Chicago Illinois USA.
I took this photo a few years ago, back in early January of 2009.
Wintertime in Chicago, isn't always the fabled land of snow and ice. Sometimes the outside temperatures can be somewhat mild on occasion.
When the outside weather conditions merit, city crews are often dispatched to go on location and patch potholes along Chicago's many busy streets.
Chicago's street sweeping schedule is listed as April 1st to November 1st of any given year. However...if the conditions are pleasant enough, these vehicles can also be found tidying up Chicago's many city streets at any time during the Winter.
