North Central Illinois Council of Governments Receives Grant 
IDOT grant allows for evaluation of potential station locations

The North Central Illinois Council of Governments (NCICG) received an Illinois Department of Transportation State Planning and Research grant in the amount of $338,000 in September 2022, and Rail Study participating communities provided a local match of $28,000. This award was to complete an evaluation of potential station locations for the proposed new passenger rail corridor.

The City of Peoria completed a Passenger Rail Feasibility Study in July 2022. This study identified a potential corridor for new passenger rail service between Peoria and Chicago. Interim stops identified include LaSalle/Peru, North Utica, Ottawa, and Morris. The current NCICG study evaluated multiple locations for these stations.

This information will be used as a guide for the communities as they consider future developments.

Ottawa — North Central Council of Governments in coordination with the communities of LaSalle, Morris, North Utica, Ottawa, and Peru, have scheduled four events to present information to the public on potential station locations for the proposed new passenger rail service between Peoria and Chicago, Illinois.

Events will be held in an open house format, which means you can attend at any time. The same materials will be available at all events so you can attend whichever is the most convenient for you. Exhibits will be on display and consultant team members will be available to answer questions. All materials will also be made available on the NCICG website following completion of the events.
