Gov. Quinn to ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- There could be new hope for passenger rail service in Rockford.
We're expected to find out on Thursday whether that train will make permanent a stop in Rockford and Belvidere, it's a project that's been in the works for years and one that hasn't really gotten on the right track.
Governor Pat Quinn will be in town Thursday to talk about a new $8.6 billion construction program. Which will use more than $250 million to re-establish the service, however, from the looks of it no projects are scheduled in Rockford from 2015-2020.
