Then and Now, Vincennes-107th

1948–Vincennes Avenue @ 107th Street, view northeast
2022–the same location

Vincennes Avenue follows an old trail southwest from Chicago. The streetcar tracks here were not in the center of the roadway, but next to the adjoining railroad right-of-way. That simplified traffic patterns, while providing higher-speed service.

The removal of the streetcar tracks allowed Vincennes Avenue to be widened to four lanes. The landscaping along the railroad tracks has also been improved.
