Carbondale Receiving $14 Million Grant for Multimodel Project

CARBONDALE – The City of Carbondale will receive a $14 million federal grant toward the Carbondale Station Multimodal Project through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) BUILD grant program. The grant was announced Wednesday by Senators Tammy Duckworth and Dick Durbin.

“This federal investment will be a tremendous boost to Carbondale and Southern Illinois,” Durbin said in a release. “A new multimodal transportation center will help better connect the families, businesses, and students of Carbondale to both local and national destinations.”

The new multimodal facility will house the region’s public transportation providers, Amtrak and Greyhound bus service, allowing seamless connections between all modes of transportation. The project will also include the region’s first bike sharing service.
