U.S. Transportation Secretary LaHood Announces $3.6 million for Track Upgrades in Missouri. 

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood today announced the award of $3.6 million for the Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT) to construct a third main track on the St. Louis Grand Avenue-to-Gratiot Street rail corridor, which is one of the busiest rail corridors in the metropolitan St. Louis area.  The project will allow the existing track located nearest the Gateway Intermodal Station to be used primarily for Amtrak train access to the Gateway Station.  The improvements will reduce delays to Amtrak trains and improve the on-time performance of this busy rail corridor in downtown St. Louis.
