ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A railway connecting Chicago to the Forest City might be coming sooner than you think.
Senator Steve Stadelman is sponsoring a House bill that could create a railway from Chicago to St. Louis and major cities in-between. That could include Rockford, Peoria, and Decatur.
Sen. Stadelman released this statement saying in part quote:
“Connecting Rockford to Chicago through rail has always been one of my top priories. Investing in a network like this would further expand travel opportunities.”
House Bill 399 heads to the Senate floor next.
