Tracks Work Disputes Chicago-St. Louis Travel

Amtrak is providing bus service through June 22 for many Lincoln Service trains and rerouting the Texas Eagle due to track work on the regular route that is designed to bring the Chicago–St. Louis corridor up to 110 mph speeds

The track and signal upgrades are being undertaken by Union Pacific, which owns the tracks. Bus service was being provided between Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, and St. Louis.

The Chicago-San Antonio Texas Eagle was to use the Union Pacific’s former Chicago & Eastern Illinois Villa Grove and Pana Subdivisions and would not be making any intermediate stops.

The substitute bus service and detour of the Texas Eagle has become a summer route in recent years as the high-speed rail project has progressed.
