I was hearing bits and pieces from the on-line scanner about traction motors and Amps but other radio calls were stepping on this conversation. I'm assuming that call was coming from Q327.

You seem to be correct. Google maps traffic overlay shows this, so only 112th appears blocked... I'm pretty sure the original crew out of Chicago ran out of time.. nice place to die if that was the case:
