Two Seasons in Illinois, winter and construction season

Construction worker hit on Dan Ryan
Sometimes the construction gets so bad, and so do backups, that people actually make better time getting around town in the Winter.
Our other season is upon us now, and it's construction season. It's time to watch out for more than slick ice and snow. You have to slow down because construction workers are on the roads.

The White Sox at the Cell had some construction going on during the off season. A new scoreboard that shows all happenings of all the other games being that day. I am not too impressed, it's pretty, but more light up and too bold.
The other area is a family area, where kids can bat, throw balls, and meet Southpaw when he's out and about over in that area.
There are bronze statues of Fisk, Cominsky and others.
