Canadian Pacific’s Bensenville (BEN) is one of three CP intermodal terminals in the United States. It is located in the Chicago downtown area.

According to the 2013 National Transportation Atlas Database, BEN is located on the Elgin Subdivision. Canadian National (CN), Norfolk Southern (NS), and Amtrak have trackage rights over this line. Bensenville is a TOFC-COFC terminal.

Under the CREATE project, Irving Park Road at York will be lowered and a bridge for CP’s tracks will be built over the road. This grade separation scheduled to be completed in 2015, will result in the elimination of grade crossing delay for 6,500 motorists and improve the flow of 25 freight trains per day.
