Q5 Sets Aside $50K For Rail Relocation Effort

Springfield’s Q5 jobs initiative is setting aside some money… just in case… for the ongoing railroad relocation project.


Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce CEO Steward Sandstrom says the $50,000 fund may be used for media outreach to make city residents understand what the project entails and how it will affect them.


But he says the money could also be used to fend off any legal challenges that could delay the project.


Sandstrom says upgrading the 10th Street corridor so that it can handle a big increase in train traffic… without disrupting the flow of cars through the city… is essential to Springfield’s long-term economic health.
