Illinois to Press Ahead with Quad Cities Project

Faced with a deadline to use or lose a federal grant, Illinois officials are pressing ahead with a campaign to restore passenger train service between Chicago and the Quad Cities of Illinois and Iowa.

IDOTThe Federal Railroad Administration had awarded more than $170 million in 2010 to get the service going. That grant expires on June 30 if it is not used.

The FRA said it has been notified that the Illinois Department of Transportation wants to move ahead on the project and plans to submit a grant amendment.
