CREATE Program 75th Street Corridor Improvement Project Draft Environmental Impact Statement – March 28, 2014 Cook County, Illinois

75th Street Corridor Improvement Project.  Six major railroads—two passenger and four freight—pass through the Chicago neighborhoods of Ashburn, Englewood, Auburn Gresham, and Chatham. These railroads cross at several points within the area. The crossings result in congestion and delays. This project will consider alternatives such as rail-rail flyovers to reduce this conflict.
