High Speed Rail in Central Illinois

Several people in the past few days have asked us if we know anything about the high speed rail proposals in central Illinois. Yesterday President Obama announced that the State of Illinois will receive roughly $1.2 Billion for the rail corridor from St. Louis to Chicago.

The Pantagraph states that the Pontiac and Dwight stations will receive upgrades including air conditioning, parking, and lighted message boards and sections of track between Odell and Godfrey will be improved.

See The Pantagraph article for more information on this project.
