WHAT IS THE HOLDING TRACK?
In 2016, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) in conjunction with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) announced a plan to increase daily trips on the Amtrak Hiawatha line from Chicago to Milwaukee. Their plan includes a proposal to build a new 2-mile long holding track in Glenview to help facilitate the flow of freight trains in and out of nearby freight yards.
