Large murals to be installed at Springfield’s new transportation hub

Two large murals that will be located at the new $86 million Springfield-Sangamon County Transportation Hub will provide “a history lesson of sorts” for travelers and visitors, said a local artist and member of the mural advisory committee.

The Sangamon County board recently accepted the advisory committee’s recommendations and approved contracts for two artists from New York and Pennsylvania.

The murals are scheduled to be installed later this fall. The budget for the installation of both murals was $217,525.

The hub is designed to bring together Amtrak trains, Sangamon Mass Transit District buses, paratransit vehicles, airport shuttles and taxis just northeast of the Sangamon County building on Ninth Street.
