Racine intersects with 13st St twice

I hit the wrong keys Racine intersects with 31st St twice

Milwaukee Ave.

The answer is Milwaukee Avenue... It intersects Elston Avenue twice.

Sheridan Road

I believe the street that intersects another street twice is SHERIDAN ROAD. Sheridan runs N/S and crosses Broadway just north of Irving park, then Sheridan briefly runs E/W and crosses Broadway again just south of Irving Park. It's that little jog in both Sheridan and the EL that interrupts the straight north to south run.

elston

elston ave intersects with milwaukss ave twice

The only street I know that intersects with the same street twice is the 8300 to 8500 block of Kimbark (south) where it intersects twice with Kenwood. This street is in the Marynook neighborhood in Avalon Park. Most of the streets in this neighborhood are not in the normal "grid" pattern found throughout Chicago. Kimbark is usually parallel with Kenwood elsewhere in the city.

elston ave intersects with milwaukee ave twice

Milwaukee and Elston Avenues (both northwest-southeast diagonals) intersect twice—at 800 north (at Fry Street, just north of Chicago Avenue) and again at 6200 north (at Melvina Street, just north of Peterson Avenue).

This is my weedout question for real Chicagoans. It is Elston Ave which begins at Milwaukee just north of Chicago Ave and crosses Milwaukee again near 6000 North.

The street is 67th Street. It intersects with Marquette Road twice!

Wow. A lot of people really want a t-shirt.

Elston… with Milwaukee

Stevenson Expy (Archer) and 31st. Western (two Westerns) at Archer. Also, I would say that Milwaukee and Elston don't intersect. At its base Milwaukee dumps in but they don't actually intersect. I win.

Actually, Sheridan and Broadway intersect 3 times: once just south of Irving Park, secondly at Montrose and finally when Sheridan merges with Broadway at Devon. You can send me my t-shirt now.

Wow... Let's all hang on the edge of our seats to see of we can get that free t-shirt.

Elston Avenue intersects twice with Milwaukee Avenue and vice versa.
One intersection is in my old neighborhood (not far from Superdawg) and the other intersection is roughly 800 North.

Since I didn't read the paper until late in the evening, I surmise I am not the first to post my answer.

It was fun nonetheless since I am not the greatest at trivia. :)

the street is elston...it starts and ends at milwaukee

Chicago ave & Grand ave

the street is Ogden

That would be Elson which intersects Milwaukee twice.

That would be Elston which intersects Milwaukee twice.

Do I get points for being the only one to come up with that one, Mark? I'll take a beer instead of a t-shirt.

What a stupid question. There must be two streets to intersect with each other.
