Summary

Urges that all proposed Illinois rail projects with new freight train holding tracks adjacent to residential areas, including the current Chicago-Milwaukee Intercity Passenger Rail Program described above have a full Environmental Impact Statement. Urges the Illinois Department of Transportation to pursue options to eliminate or minimize the routing of bypass freight traffic through the Chicago metropolitan area, including prioritizing the review and study of rail bypass systems around Chicago that would ensure coastal rail traffic not destined for Chicago could more efficiently bypass the Chicago region and significantly reduce the negative impacts of freight rail in the highest populated areas of Illinois.
