Chicago-St. Louis Amtrak Service Disruptions to Continue Through Nov. 10 Due to Track Work

The disruptions to Amtrak’s Lincoln Service and Texas Eagle will continue through Nov. 10 due to bridge work being performed by Union Pacific in Illinois.

Lincoln Service trains 300, 301, 305 and 306 will be canceled between Chicago and St. Louis between Nov. 1 and 10.

In a service advisory, Amtrak directed passengers planning travel on those trains to use other Lincoln Service train/bus service options.

Trains 302, 303, 304 and 307 will operate normally between St. Louis and Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. Express bus service will operate in both directions between Chicago and Bloomington-Normal providing connections to these trains.

Amtrak service will not be available at Pontiac, Dwight, Joliet and Summit.

The Chicago-San Antonio Texas Eagle will detour over an alternate UP route between Chicago and St. Louis during the same period.

The Eagle will not make passenger stops at any intermediate city on its detour route via the Illinois towns of Pana, Tuscola and Villa Grove.

The Eagle will operate as scheduled south of St. Louis. Passengers originating at points south of St. Louis and bound for stations served by No. 22 north of St. Louis will disembark in St. Louis and board a bus that will stop only to discharge passengers.

Amtrak said Nos. 21 and 22 may encounter delays up to 45 during the detour move.
