More City of Chicago Sweatin' the Details
Since rights of way are typically under the streets they are constantly being torn up here in the city of Chicago. The City isn't too concerned about the details, though... just throw some giant metal plates over it and leave it for a few months. As the cars drive over you hear the "cuh-chunk" of the plates banging against the cement over and over and over again. And then they kind of do a patch job, and the winter comes, and enormous potholes sprout up again.
Or this - this wooden plate has been "fixing" a hole in the sidewalk on Wells street north of Hooters for many years now. No need to do anything more than this, I guess.
