Found a benchmark that no one seems to know about


Recommended Posts

Hi all-


I happened to be walking down Ontario Street towards Michigan Ave in Chicago tonight and discovered a benchmark in the ground. I did a search on Waymarking.com, as well as the benchmark database, and it doesn't seem to be in either place.


The picture was taken at night, but you can make out the following text: "Cook County Highway Dept Benchmark".


The question I have is ... what now? I read the FAQs about finding benchmarks, but didn't see if there was anything to do if it wasn't found in either Waymarking or the benchmark database.


I have included the picture here. I'll try to take another during the daytime.
