CTA Flyover Demolitions Update #1

I went back to Clark and Roscoe yesterday to check on the progress of 14 buildings that are being demolished for a new flyover for the Brown Line. (If you haven't yet take a look at my documentation of the area prior to the start of demolition.) So far, the two and three flat buildings on Wilton are gone and the newer multi-unit building on the corner of Wilton and School is half demolished. I assume it will be entirely gone by tomorrow (Monday 4/9/18).

The two triangular commercial buildings at Clark and Roscoe are also gone. The removal of the building on the northeast side of that intersection revealed a large ghost ad for "Banke's Coffee" as well as a poster advertising Riverview amusement park (the latter is not pictured here). 

I will be documenting the remainder of the demolition work as well as the construction of the flyover over the next few years, so stay tuned for more as this progresses.
