High speed rail moves to the next step


Springfield – The Sangamon County Board is hoping an agreement will soon be met on the high speed rail of the 10th Street corridor.


The next step for the project is to get aerial photos of the route, which they hope to get done before spring. Full cost of the rail upgrades is expected to be 315 million dollars.


The project will involve removing 72 rail crossing as well as closing underpasses and overpasses.
