Report On Rail Consolidation Delayed Until Late June


Springfield is still waiting on the trains… and on a study that could determine which rail corridor will be used to accommodate them. 

 

That environmental impact study was originally expected to be delivered by the end of May.  Mayor Mike Houston says the target date has been changed several times… and he’s now told the report will be delivered by June 28th

 

The study is expected to make recommendations on which rail corridor is best suited to handle an expected major increase in rail traffic.  Houston says he’s optimistic that the report will select the 10th Street tracks… which is the favored route of both the city and Sangamon County.  But even if it does, the next challenge is how to find the money to pay for that rail consolidation project.
