Slippery conditions on University, Markham

Photographer Brian Chilson provides this shot, looking south down University Avenue from Markham Street, at an oily slick that coated University as far aways as I-630. The slick continued east at Markham Street to a St. Vincent Infirmary entrance. Street crews put down salt and police blocked the righthand turn on the upgrade to Markham Street because of the difficulty in negotiating it. Chilson said several wrecks had occurred. I'm trying to get an explanation from police. Fire Department units are also at work.

The mess has blocked access to St. Vincent, a motorist who tried to visit reports. The northbound exit to University from I-630 is also blocked.
