Ameren Gets 10,000 Signatures To Save Rock Island

rock island trailA group of local citizens are fighting to keep the former Rock Island rail corridor to build a trail system similar to the Katy trail. Residents are hoping that the current owner of the line, Ameren Missouri, will see the efforts and support the communities. Earlier this year, Ameren announced they were planning to sell the rail line, following that announcement, the cities around the line joined forces with the Rock Island Trail Coalition from Owensville and the Missouri Bike Federation to send 10,000 signatures asking Ameren to consider the coalition’s submission for purchasing the corridor Thursday. The Rock Island line runs from St. Louis to Kansas City and runs through Meta, Eldon, Versailles and Cole Camp.
