The Illinois Department of Transportation is cancelling a public meeting regarding the high-speed rail project and the Multimodal Transportation Center project originally scheduled for Alton later today.  The meeting was scheduled from 4-7pm at Alton City Hall, but was called off due to the severe weather moving through the state.  IDOT stated in a news release that it would be working on a new date.

This will be the latest step in developing the former Wadlow Municipal Golf Course in Alton into a multi-modal transportation center.  The document is also available for review and comment online until May 4.  You can find a link here:
