Metra Announces Major Tie Replacement Project on the BNSF Line

Metra has advised the Village that starting Tuesday, October 23, BNSF crews will be along the tracks in Downers Grove as part of a major tie replacement project between Hinsdale and Aurora. According to Metra, the project will be condensed into a single weekend to minimize the impact on commuter service. Schedule alterations, including cancellations and brief train delays are expected.
