Willis Tower Entrance Closed for Falling Ice

Posted by David Nemeroff | Mar 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

One of the main entrances for the Willis Tower was cordoned off for about an hour this morning due to falling ice. Barricades were placed around the Franklin Street side of the building between Jackson Boulevard and Adams Street due to the dangerous condition. People were still able to use Wacker Drive entrance, as well as the Skydeck entrance on Jackson.

Property owners owe a duty of care to those who are invited to come onto their premises. If an owner knows of, or should have known of, a dangerous condition, and fails to correct it, that owner can be held liable for damages. In this instance, building management knew of a dangerous condition and took the proper precautions in order to keep the public safe. Knowing that falling ice is common this time of year, they chose to err on the side of caution. However, some property owners may not do the right thing.
