McGovern's Tavern Still Struggling After Train Derailment
The new restaurant receives assistance from the Village of Glenview, but not enough to cover all costs.
The Village of Glenview announced in November it would help businesses affected by the fatal, July train derailment by paying rent while Shermer Rd. traffic remains blocked by a Union Pacific stone bridge.
But Declan Morgan, owner of McGovern's Tavern at the corner of Shermer Rd. and Willow Rd., told the Chicago Tribune he's still going into debt because of low customer turnout.
Shermer Rd. is expected to stay closed for two years while Union Pacific designs and builds a new bridge to span the street and restore traffic to the area.
