Illinois Department of Transportation Expressway Pumping Station on Union Avenue north of Roosevelt Road. This station is typical of many in the Central Area, situated near the expressway, but accessible via local streets. All stations are automated and are equipped with electrically operated pumps. Operating and security status are reported to the department’s operations center. (Photo by author)
