In November 2019, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao announced the recipients of the Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Transportation Discretionary Grants program. Funding has been awarded to 55 projects in 35 states, and Uptown Normal's urban connector project was one of them.  To view a list of the all awardees, please click here.

The project will design and construct a pedestrian, bicyclist, and passenger underpass as well as a second boarding platform on the south side of the tracks at the Uptown Normal Intermodal Passenger Rail Station.  The urban connector will improve safety, improve access, and support economic development. This presentation made by Public Works Director Wayne Aldrich details the goals of this project and all the alternatives Town Staff explored.  

Stay tuned to this Featured Topic.  It will be updated as the project progresses.
