About Normal

Normal is a city located in McLean County, Illinois. It was founded in 1854 and was originally named North Bloomington. However, in 1865, the name was changed to Normal due to the presence of the Illinois State Normal University, which was established in the city. The university is known for its strong education programs and has been a major influence on the development of the city.

Freight transportation has played a significant role in the growth of Normal. The city is strategically located along major transportation routes, including Interstate 55 and Interstate 74, making it an ideal location for businesses involved in the transportation and logistics industry. The Central Illinois Regional Airport, located in nearby Bloomington, provides air cargo services, further enhancing the city's freight transportation capabilities.

In recent years, Normal has seen an increase in freight rail activity. The city is served by the Union Pacific Railroad, which operates a major rail yard in the area. The rail yard handles a wide range of commodities, including agricultural products, chemicals, and consumer goods. The presence of the rail yard has attracted businesses to the area, contributing to the economic growth of Normal.
