A Illinois attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. This could be something that civil engineers and city planners are more familiar with than attorneys. One option is to contact the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) for information. Good luck
A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. There really is no bulletproof way to prevent lawsuits, because there is no way to control the tendency of people to sue. Insurance is the primary safeguard against this. Good luck
