State Fair Coliseum Declared Too Dangerous For People
One of the most iconic buildings at the Illinois State Fair is too dangerous for public use. "The State Journal Register" is reporting on a new inspection that found a host of serious problems with the building. The report says support columns are rusting to the point that they're a risk for failures. State officials say it could cost about four-million dollars to fix the issues. But the state doesn't have much money for, or the authority to spend it as of the new year.
