UPRR High-Speed Rail, Tier 2 EA – Girard Siding

High-Speed Rail Project

Owner:  Union Pacific Railroad

Location:  Virden – Girard – Nilwood, IL (Mile Post 203.0 – 215.0)

Millstone Weber (MW) is currently performing work for Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) on the Tier 2 EA – Girard Siding segment of the Illinois High-Speed Rail project. The overall purpose of this project is to enhance the passenger transportation network within the Chicago to St. Louis corridor, which will result in a more balanced use of the modal components. The area of Tier 2 EA has limits between MP 203.0 to MP 215.0 on the Springfield Subdivision, which includes construction of a second main track and access roads from MP 206.0 to 214.50.  This segment also includes construction of culvert replacements, bridge improvements, and the reconstruction of roadway crossings.

The Illinois High-Speed Rail project is set to bring high-speed rail service to Illinois by 2017. The completion date for Tier 2 EA – Girard Siding is anticipated for July 2015.  More details on the scope and milestones on this segment of the project are listed below.
