|Road Closed at Clark and Juneway|
The other side of North of Howard now has an unmanned checkpoint. Couple weeks ago Jonquil and Sheridan had a police manned barricade. Per Mike Klotz the road closed fence is pushed back to the middle of Juneway at night. Has been for the past few days at least.
North of Howard is the site of a disproportionate amount of gunfire and violence on the far north side. A weird sub neighborhood (no man's land) that became part of Chicago by default. Two major chokepoints; to the east Sheridan and Jonquil and here (Clark and Juneway). Cruisers are usually positioned at Howard/Paulina and Ashland.
Evanston Police conduct impromptu seat belt and speed checks on Sheridan by the graveyard time and again. How about gun checks going in and out of NOH?
NOH becomes a de facto gated community with these street barriers. Evanston years ago walled off its entry point to NOH at Chicago and Mulford. Streets can tie communities together or divide them. Another example of poor Evanston/Chicago connectivity? Custer is north/south north of Howard and Damen is south bound only south of Howard.

|Chicagoans and Noh'ers not welcome in Evanston?|
No cross walk, no bike path, just vegetation to block the view.
