Closing of Clark and Addison Streets Before and After Games

Kenney said the team continues to push for the closing of Clark and Addison streets before and after games over terror concerns following truck attacks on pedestrians in Europe. He drew parallels with the barriers put up at the Christkindlmarket, even though Mayor Rahm Emanuel has been resistant to the idea thus far.

Alex Sugarman, the Cubs’ vice president in charge of ballpark operations, called it “an unfortunate reality” that the team needed to be vigilant, adding, “We still believe long-term that’s the answer for us.”

Kenney said dialogue with city officials was ongoing and “the conversations have gotten more real.”
