City Applying for Federal DOT Grants for Rail Underpass


The City of Springfield is working to shore up more money for rail consolidation, including an application for $14.8 million in US Department of Transportation grant money for a rail underpass.

 

The city, alongside The Illinois Department of Transportation and Sangamon County, announced the underpass plan for Carpenter Street as something that will allow for safer traffic flow for everything from regular traffic to those needing emergency medical attention from area hospitals.

 

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says the city’s plan to get an engineering study prepared for rail consolidation will help with the US DOT grant.
