Portions Of Railroad Project Could Proceed, Even Without Full Funding Guarantees

Supporters of Springfield’s railroad relocation project hope to move ahead with the early phases… even though there’s no guarantee of enough funding to see it through to completion. 


The $315 million project calls for moving the 3rd Street tracks to the 10th Street corridor… and building a series of overpasses and underpasses to allow traffic to move through the city without lengthy delays from the increased rail traffic through town. 


Experts from Hanson Engineers say some of those underpasses along 10th Street could be built with whatever money is available… and they say that would make life easier for drivers, even if the funding never materializes to make all the improvements or move the 3rd Street tracks.
