From the Pulse: Amtrak Construction

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Now to a story you asked about on our Facebook page.

Justin wanted an update on Amtrak service coming to the Stateline. Here's what we found out.

When it comes to the physical station in Rockford, Governor Quinn still has to give the city the go-ahead to start construction. But we're told a design team is already in place, and workers could start as soon as next year.

It'll take a bit longer to work on the tracks. The state is still negotiating with Canadian National, and those improvements may not start until 2015.
