CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The sidewalks along a large business center near Midway Airport are looking more and more like an ice skating rink, and with more winter weather on the way, residents want answers.

The Midway Business Center in the 5600 block of South Archer Avenue was sold for millions in 2016. Since then, the owners have left the state, and left those walking by in the winter to fend for themselves.

“It’s dangerous,” said Lutricia Rogers, who walks by on a daily basis. 

She told CBS 2 it is time the owners follow the law and clear the snow and ice from sidewalks. 

“You could slip and fall and break your back, break a leg, or break something," she said.

CBS 2 reports the owners of the business center did not respond to a request for comment.
