This January we mostly had “good” air quality at our Chinatown-International District air monitor. Six days measured in the “moderate” category, mostly due to little wind and rain to blow away the air pollution.
Air pollution in the neighborhood mainly comes from cars and trucks. Breathing high levels of air pollution can lead to heart attacks, strokes, asthma attacks, and more.
Did you know?
Over 13,000 cars and trucks drive through the Chinatown-International District neighborhood every day along South Jackson Street. South Dearborn Street averages even more – 22,000 vehicles per day.
