Chatham Considering Moving Railroad Crossing
City officials in Chatham want to move a railroad crossing in anticipation of increased rail traffic when the high-speed rail project is complete. Right now, the crossing is at Spruce Street. Officials say moving it to Golden Drive will alleviate anticipated traffic backup caused by high-speed rail.
Before they can move ahead with the project, the Federal Railroad Administration and Illinois Department of Transportation must approve it.
