EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois county is weighing whether to commit $500,000 toward an East St. Louis station along an emerging high-speed Amtrak route.
 
The Belleville News-Democrat reports St. Clair County's governing board is considering the investment.
 
The state is working to connect Chicago and St. Louis with a 284-mile rail track capable of allowing trains to reach 110 mph.
 
The board will consider using the money to aid the Illinois Department of Transportation with the design and planning of the station.
 
Board Chairman Mark Kern last week asked the panel's other members to support the station.
 
The total cost of an East St. Louis station is unclear.
 
The project is expected to be completed in 2017.

High-speed rail moving forward

The Illinois Department of Transportation says about $1.45 billion in contracts have been awarded so far for high-speed rail construction. 

    Work on the project is in its fourth season, and most of the current construction focuses on sidings and design of an automated control system. Officials hope to have the high-speed rail service between St. Louis and Chicago up and running in 2015.
