19 August 2013: Big Day at the Substation

It's hard to believe that less than twelve hours before this picture was taken, this intersection was full of fun-loving people dancing to disco music at the Glenwood Ave. Arts Fest. But by early this morning, the CTA construction site at Glenwood and Farwell was swarming with workers as tons of concrete were poured to form a foundation for the electrical substation that will be built on the site. Farwell was closed to traffic, and there were pick-up trucks and SUVs parked in every available open space, while a steady stream of cement trucks arrived full and left empty. For more pictures and commentary on the construction, please visit my other blog, How to Build a Substation.
