Placeholder Image
MILTON - The path for a proposed rail line bypassing Chicago has switched from farmland on the western side of Rock County to farmland on the eastern side of the county. In February, Great Lakes Basin founder Frank Patton announced that his company hoped to build a 275-mile rail line that would start near Orfordville and serve as a bypass around Chicago. A new map shows the rail line connecting to a Wisconsin & Southern Railroad line near Milton and going south.
