Caldwell RR crossing

When will something be done about this triangle of mess? During rush hour and the increased Metra traffic this area gets jammed packed with cars. Also on Caldwell running west across the tracks and Lehigh people are constantly running the red light. Could the Metra make a flyover to fix this problem area?

    You are way too premature with your concern Nicholas...nobody has been killed yet...only then will it get the attention/concern of anybody with the power to change anything...I share your concern as I live right by this intersection and have to cross it daily, sometime multiple times a day...when heading south...

    Here is an idea I presented to Governor Quinn under the Recovery Act but never got a reply.

    Once upon a time the train station was located east of Central on the south side of the tracks (across from Old Edgebrook, there is still an old sidewalk there if you look close) where a picnic grove is now. I doubt any one alive today knows why it was moved to its present location north of Devon where every time a train stops it completely snarls traffic in downtown Edgebrook. My idea is to move the train station back to its original location so when trains stop the train would be completely on the tracks east of Central and as such the gates would not have to be down while loading and unloading.

    The tricky part to this is that land would have to confiscated from the FPDCC. I’m talking about the land at the southeast corner of Central and Caldwell, the entire parcel east of Central, south of Caldwell, west of the golf course, north of the tracks. A new train station would be built with sorely needed parking. It would also create a safer pedestrian environment for train passengers to exit and enter the train interface. Considering what a daily nightmare traffic congestion is in downtown Edgebrook because of the train stopping the argument would be that this is using public land for the public good and the FPDCC is never going to use this obscure parcel for anything any way because of its location.

    I know, lots of politics involved, where would the funding be found during a failing economy with governments going broke would mean a very, very, very long row to hoe, but like the saying goes: “Make no small plans”. What I would like out of this project is a Veteran’s memorial incorporated into the mix
