CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A watchdog group says there are too many unanswered questions about the city's plan to get an express rail link to O'Hare.

Elon Musk and Mayor Emanuel appeared together in June to announce the Boring Co. will build a tunnel between downtown and O’Hare.

But David Greising of the Better Government Association said his organization is suing the city of Chicago over unanswered questions about the project.

“We don’t know about who bears liability for problems that might emerge as a result of the digging that goes on,” Greising said.

Greising said the city argues it doesn’t have to reveal any of the information until a formal contract is signed.
