Funding stalls for west side train station underpass

 

Lake Forest's effort to make its west side train station safer is still on hold as financial issues continue to bog down the proposal. Adding to the uncertainty, the city is now awaiting word from the Rauner administration on where the project fits into the new governor's priorities.

West LF Train Station Underpass Gets Closer

 

 

A pedestrian underpass and possible Amtrak stop at Lake Forest’s west train station are a small step closer to reality, but key questions remain unanswered.

Having used the station in Glenview, IL (also a Metra and Amtrak stop) I don't recall that one having any under or overpass; one crosses the tracks at grade right at the station.  So is the presence of a grade separate crossing really a pre-requisite for an Amtrak station stop?

Amtrak Stop OK’d, Gets Mixed Reaction

 

Amtrak favors a Lake Forest stop on its Hiawatha service between Chicago and Milwaukee, but a group of Lake Forest residents is not happy with some of the city’s efforts to obtain that approval.
