Ex-Erie Grade Crossing in Akron Removed

Akron Railroad Club member Steve McMullen reported that another grade crossing on the former Erie Railroad mainline through Akron is now gone.

The tracks at Brittain Road were removed and blacktopped over this past weekend. The two remaining gate mechanisms and most of the weeds/trees nearest the road were also removed.

This is the beginning of the trail extension from Tallmadge Circle.

They are leaving the wayside signage up with the trail. Let’s  hope that it does not disappear.
