Mayor Mike Houston says the city will have to secure some property in order to move forward with the planned 10th Street rail consolidation efforts, but Springfield is also still in litigation over property to extend 11th street.
The city has taken CONTECH to court to acquire land for the extension.
Houston says there have been disagreements about the value of the property and the city is seeking to use eminent domain to take over the property for the extension.
Houston says the 11th Street extension will open up for more traffic to Lincoln Land Community College and the University of Illinois Springfield.
There's no indication when the a decision on the case will be made.
