The Illinois Department of Transportation and Metra have received a $1.3 million federal grant to modernize the Oak Forest rail station.

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says the money has been awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Durbin says the Oak Forest station southwest of Chicago is the second-busiest on the Rock Island rail line and is used by nearly 1,500 commuters.

The current station was built 50 years ago.
