April 11, 1919. The rebuilt south drainage ditch drop chute on the west bank at Lincoln Avenue in Chicago. The disturbed soil was removed; the void filled with broken rock, gravel; and broken concrete; a new concrete drop chute was cast; and the sides of the chute were paved with mortared riprap to resist erosion.
