Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 11-57-1. The corporate authorities may compel railroad companies to raise or lower their tracks to conform to any grade which, at any time, is established by a municipality. Where the tracks run lengthwise of any street or alley, the companies shall keep their tracks on a level with the street surface, so that the tracks may be crossed at any place on that street or alley.
    The corporate authorities may compel railroad companies to make, open, and repair ditches, drains, sewers, and culverts along and under their tracks, so that water cannot stand on their property, and so that the natural drainage of adjacent property is not impeded.
