About Aurora

Aurora is the second most populous city in the state of Illinois, located in the outer region of the Chicago metropolitan area. The city has a rich history, dating back to the early 19th century when it was founded as a small trading post along the Fox River. Aurora's strategic location along major transportation routes, including the Illinois and Michigan Canal and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad, played a significant role in its growth and development.

Today, Aurora is a major transportation hub, with several freight transportation companies operating in the area. The city is served by a network of highways, including Interstate 88, which connects Aurora to major cities like Chicago and Rockford. Additionally, Aurora is home to the BNSF Railway's Eola Yard, one of the largest freight yards in the Midwest. The yard handles a wide range of commodities, including agricultural products, chemicals, and manufactured goods, contributing to the city's thriving freight transportation industry.
