U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) spoke at the dedication of the Englewood Flyover CREATE project on Thursday, October 23, in Chicago. The Englewood Flyover is a major railroad bridge that will help eliminate significant rail delays and cut emissions and noise from idling trains on the south side of Chicago. More than 90 percent of the project's funds are federal, including $126 million in high speed rail funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
