It's been hard to miss the talk about infrastructure improvements proposed by Barack Obama's White House. The one component that has us most excited is the potential for high-speed rail and Chicago serving as the main hub for the Midwest network. We've posted about this before here.
Today we read a post by the Chicago Tribune Cityscapes blog about a conceptual sketch for a high speed rail station on Harrison just west of the Chicago River. Although this is just an idea and by no means probably happening, it would be great to have this asset in the Sloop (or very close to the Sloop since this area is up for dispute as to whether or not it's in the Sloop).
Anyway, a good read if you're into the high speed rail discussion.
