Environmental Impact Study Says 10th Street Best Option For Rail Consolidation


Springfield and Sangamon County’s hopes of moving all train traffic in the city to the 10th Street corridor have gotten a big boost.

 

A draft environmental impact statement agrees that consolidation along 10th Street is the best option, even though it would require acquisition of nearly 150 parcels of land and the relocation of a number of facilities near those tracks.

 

Endorsement of the 10th Street option is just one of the hurdles facing local officials, who must still secure hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for moving the tracks and building overpasses and underpasses.

 

That draft report is available at the city’s website, and will be presented at a public hearing Thursday.
