The answer: An oil tank was removed from the ground. Contaminated soil was removed and clean soil was placed inside the hole. It takes a long while for the dirt to properly settle before a new concrete sidewalk can be installed. Unfortunately this tank was below the right of way and not inside a propertys boundary.

That would be in Candice Osborne's ward. For all the good it does, call her office and leave a message or email her. I've never gotten a response to a phone call, but she has occasionally returned my emails. She seems less accessible than Fulop was as a Ward E councilperson, unfortunately.

Why would it sit unpaved for 6 months though? What are they waiting for? It's pretty unacceptable.

Oil tank remediation....and yes, it's been like that long enough already.

If the sidewalk is covered in dirt, and then it snows on top of that dirt, do you still have to shovel? Your sidewalk is technically not snow-covered. Maybe this dirt bandit is really just a super genius.

It's at Mercer and Grove right in front of the old firehouse. It blocks the entire sidewalk. You either have to walk over it, or out into the street around it. I'm almost tempted to walk down there with a shovel and create a footpath. Seriously, the sidewalk has to be shoveled when there is snow, why is this ok?

I'm glad I'm not alone. I was trying to be polite about it but wtf? I have no idea what it could be for and there is no obvious indication from what I can tell regarding why it's there or when it will be gone. I can't think of any good reason why a mound of dirt would randomly be on the sidewalk for weeks on end.

It's ridiculous, as well as potentially unsafe, not to mention unsightly. It has been there continuously for at least 6 months. I posted about it before, nobody had any answers. Can't somebody be fined for that?

Does anyone know what this is about? I could have sworn I have seen this in the past and then it randomly went away. Now it's back again and has been here for a few weeks with no apparent end in sight. It doesn't look like there is any construction going on from what I can tell. I'm just wondering what it's for/from and when it might go away. Is it just the "every few months randomly dump dirt on the sidewalk" time again? I'm sure there is some ridiculously obvious reason why its there which is why I'm asking because I have no idea. I just get tired of walking over it/around it every day but in the end it's really not that big of a deal. I'm just curious.
