Illinois commits $8.6M for Springfield rail route
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Illinois has set aside $8.6 million for engineering studies and designs for a section of the Chicago-St. Louis high-speed rail line that runs through the state capital.
That, along with preliminary environmental approval, boosts chances of resolving a key dispute over the line's route through Springfield.
Local officials opposed an early proposal that they felt would cause disruption to business downtown and to the medical district.
