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. 11-80-21. The corporate authorities by condemnation or otherwise may extend any street or alley over or across, or may construct any sewer under any railroad track, or through the right-of-way or land of any railroad company. Where no compensation is made to the railroad company, however, the municipality shall restore the railroad track, right-of-way, or land so that its usefulness will not be impaired more than is reasonably necessary.
