The "energized" rehab of Grand-State CTA Red Line station

Be careful of getting too energized on the platform level at Grand and State on the Red Line, which is undergoing a two-year-plus renovation of the mezzanine and platform. Here’s the close-up view of the door sign I found there:

And the full view of the door:

OK, who can tell us what this sign means?

    Well, obviously Scotty beamed the whole room - including the original door - to the Enterprise.
    "Kirk to Scotty, one room to beam up. Energize"

    That is the portal that Neo used in one of The Matrix sequels.

    And what is that little drawing with a 23 next to it? Can't quite make it out...looks like a USB thumb drive. Doesn't seem like graffiti.

  • I'm sure Kevin was being facetious Max T-M, maybe you should remove that stick..
