            By application filed October 11, 2017, Alloy Property Company, LLC (Alloy), seeks the third-party, or “adverse,” abandonment of the remaining portions of the C&E and Bloomingdale lines of the Chicago Terminal Railroad (CTM) in Chicago, Cook County, Ill., originating at the western side of North Elston Avenue and proceeding east and south to Goose Island to a terminus near the intersection of North Branch Street and Halsted Street, a distance of approximately 2.625 miles.

 

            By decision served on August 9, 2017, the Board entered a protective order and, in a decision served August 16, 2017, the Board granted in part and denied in part Alloy’s motion for a waiver of certain Board regulations and exemptions from related statutory provisions regarding its application.  On September 18, 2017, CTM filed a motion to compel discovery from Alloy.  Alloy filed a reply on October 5, 2017.
