Worn street surface and ancient streetcar tracks

I mentioned this back in January. I finally got a picture of them. This is at 95th and Michigan just before turning onto 95th. Not only do you see bricks, but also what appears to be an old manhole cover. Of course who should be able to see a rail as well probably from the time when streetcars ran down Michigan Avenue during a bygone era. Streetcars last ran in Chicago in 1958.

I should also mention that this street was last resurfaced back in 2002. I wonder if the reason this hasn't been patched up again is because of the whole capital budget situation. A capital budget provides for the repairs of infrastructure as well as building new schools.
