Rail Relocation Project Update – Feb. 11, 4-7 pm

In cooperation with Sangamon County, the City of Springfield and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Springfield Rail Improvement project will relocate all passenger and freight traffic from the Third Street corridor to Tenth Street; construct roadway underpasses at critical rail crossings on both the Tenth and Nineteenth Street corridors; and eliminate train horns in the City between Stanford Avenue and Sangamon Avenue.

A public open house is being hosted on Thursday, February 11, from 4:00-7:00p.m. at the Prairie Capital Convention Center for residents to come and learn more about the project and a chance to ask questions to those involved in the project.
