Mayor Tells Residents Near Tracks: Don't Wait Around For Rail Project

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston has a message for property owners near the 10th Street railroad tracks… don’t stand around waiting for the government to buy your property. 


Houston says there’s no way to know how quickly land acquisition will begin for dozens of parcels that will eventually have to be demolished to make way for an expanded rail corridor. 


State and local officials are trying to secure grants and other federal funds for a big chunk of the estimated $380 million cost… but funding is likely to come in a little at a time, over a period of years.
