  2. - @misterjayem - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 8:44 am:

    Land of Sinkin’

    – MrJM


  3. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 8:46 am:

    Illinois’ footprint on America is undeniable


  4. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 8:46 am:

    Just wait until we break this up… and make it two potholes


  5. - South of Sherman - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 8:49 am:

    This satellite view shows just how bad the spring flooding has gotten.

  9. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:00 am:

    Some work in clay, or oil paints, some water colors… they work in industrial street concrete and runoff rain.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:03 am:

    To be honest, it started out to be a Lincoln silhouette… but we got a bit too ambitious… and we improvised… and this what we got.


  11. - Give Me A Break - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:07 am:

    The new combined logo for DOT and CDB.


  12. - OneMan - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:21 am:

  13. - Vic Romano - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:25 am:

    Finally Hunter Lake!


  14. - Peter Coffey - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:39 am:

    It took four guys from Local 150 a full day to make this prop to sell the road construction bill, but they nailed it.


  15. - striketoo - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:48 am:

    Time to raise the gas tax.


  16. - Huh? - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:50 am:

    “four guys from Local 150″

    Oh god no, the laborers are going to be upset that another union is doing their work. Laborers drive the jackhammers, operators drive the machines.


  17. - Jocko - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 9:51 am:

    Satellite imaging believed to be a vast oil reserve is actually bong water runoff from Lollapalooza and 4/20 events at local colleges.

    You never let a serious crisis go to waste


  20. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 10:13 am:

    If we’d put Bruce’s old costumes in a compactor, they’d fill this pothole and dozens more.


  21. - Smitty Irving - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 10:18 am:

    How much did John Tillman pay to photoshop away the potholes that are “Oppositeland” (In) & MO & KY & … /s


  22. - A guy - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 10:20 am:

    Notice that Wisconsin decided to patch their portion of the problem.


  23. - Lord Voldemort - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 10:20 am:

    Honestly, where was this picture taken? This image is a little too good (or too useful) to be true.


  24. - A guy - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 10:21 am:

    One more inch of rain and you can see for yourself: Davenport gets it.


  25. - I Miss Betohs - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 10:23 am:

    You don’t even want to know what is buried under that oil and water … let’s just say more ex-govs should be in jail.


  26. - Huh? - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 10:31 am:

    Nothin’ that some cold patch can’t fix.


  27. - Lord Voldemort - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 10:43 am:

    Okay, a caption:

    You know how sometimes folks from Michigan will use their hand like it’s a map? In Illinois we use potholes. It’s our thing.

    Underwater


  29. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 11:18 am:

  32. - Strategy Geek - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 11:39 am:

    A rising tide…


  33. - 47th Ward - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 12:42 pm:

    For once, western Illinois is the envy of the rest of the state.


  34. - Hanley - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 12:50 pm:

    The pond at IDOT’s Hanley Building is supposed to be shaped like Illinois.


  35. - wordslinger - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 12:58 pm:

    –Honestly, where was this picture taken? This image is a little too good (or too useful) to be true.–

    Of course. It got some help.

    But if you go up a block, there’s an image of the Virgin Mary in a salt stain under a viaduct.


  36. - 47th Ward - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 1:03 pm:

    ===the Virgin Mary in a salt stain under a viaduct===

    Ahem, we refer to that as “Our Lady of the Fullerton Underpass.”


  37. - lost in the weeds - Thursday, May 9, 19 @ 2:17 pm:

    Those beaches could be the site of a beautiful tower.
