Abandoned Government No. 2

Abandoned Government, No. 2

Here’s the locked door to one of the ammunition bunkers at the former Joliet Arsenal. The nearly 400 bunkers were designed to contain an ordnance explosion, and the steel doors, like this one here, contain asbestos. Disassembly of each bunker costs approximately $50,000. As such, only about two dozen bunkers have been removed.
