The $3.2 billion Chicago Region Environmental and Transportation Efficiency initiative has made more headway, and this piece highlights some of its recent projects. In Downers Grove, Ill., a $60 million grade separation did away with an intersection between three BNSF tracks that handled 150 trains a day and a four-lane road.

A third project was the building of a tub-type crossing at a BNSF crossing in the city.
