City staff and others have been working on the project since 2009. The goal is to create a safe way for pedestrians to get from one side of the tracks to the other. If the station has a pedestrian underpass, the city hopes to secure an Amtrak stop — which would be the only Lake County stop between Chicago and Milwaukee — at the station.
