While officials in Normal are proud of their new $50 million Uptown Station officially opening this weekend, some in the transportation industry refer to it as the "crown jewel" of high speed rail's U. S. future. WGLT's Willis Kern has more with the Deputy Director Kevin Brubaker of the Environmental Law and Policy Center.
Environmental Law and Policy Center's Kevin Brubaker says the opening of the station in Normal is a major accomplishment for the town as well as the U. S. rail industry.
The dedication for Uptown Station is Saturday July 14 at 10 AM. Public tours will follow from 11 AM to 4 PM.
