Now that high-speed rail is picking up steam across Illinois, there is still one big unanswered question, where will those trains go when they reach Springfield?
There’s been no final determination yet, but U.S. Senator Dick Durbin believes federal and state officials will approve a plan to consolidate train tracks onto the 10th Street corridor.
And Durbin thinks more federal money will be on the way to help pay for the project, but can’t say yet how much.
However, he does say the appropriations will likely be spread out over a period of years.
