A project to create an underpass to take 71st Street traffic under the CSX railroad tracks near Toyota Park in Bridgeview was officially kicked off Monday.

U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinksi’s office says the project will create about 300 jobs and eliminate traffic delays and improve safety in the area.

Eighty freight trains pass through the crossing daily resulting in frequent traffic delays, accidents, and air pollution from long lines of idling vehicles, Lipinski’s office said.
