CASH FOR A PASS

Members of Illinois’ congressional delegation this week put their collective weight into moving Springfield’s 10th Street rail consolidation forward. They sent a letter to U.S. transportation secretary Ray LaHood, an Illinois boy, asking for money to build an underpass at Carpenter Street and 10th Street. Sen. Dick Durbin, Sen. Mark Kirk, Rep. Aaron Schock and Rep. Rodney Davis sent the letter in support of the application submitted by the City of Springfield and Sangamon County.  They say the underpass will eliminate three at-grade crossings and reduce train delay time by 71 percent. The underpass would cost about $14 million.
