csxtBRIDGEVIEW – The office of Senator Steven Landek (D-Bridgeview) reports that the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) recently began engineering and environmental studies on the CSXT Railroad underpass on Archer Ave at 63rd St.

IDOT says the purpose of these studies is to determine the priority of what improvements can be done within the scope of the project’s budget. The main emphasis of the project is to repair the super-structure on the deck, which carries trains over the roadway.

Other issues being looked at include the slope of the underpass and repaving of the roadway. The drainage system, which has caused flooding issues for decades, will also be evaluated as part of the studies.

“This is the first step in the process, but it is one that is needed,” Landek said.
