Peterson Metra Station Update

metra5

We heard the following (unsubstantiated) update from our neighbors who live in the NEW Block Club area next to our proposed Peterson Metra Station:

“I talked to a Metra official at the Stand Up 4 Transportation event at Union Station today, and he said what he’s hearing is that ground won’t be broken until at least next year (2016). He said Gov. Rauner’s proposed cuts are not affecting the project at this time, because those cuts target operating expenses, not the capital expenditures already approved for this project. He said the current holdup is red-tape related.”

If anyone has any additional information feel free to get in touch. Wonder what the “red tape” is all about. The neighbors are getting restless 🙂
