PUCO Approves Grade Crossing Projects

Three railroads in Ohio will upgrade grade crossing as a result of action taken last week by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

Norfolk Southern will install lights and gates at the County Road 84 crossing in Hancock County by April 4, 2021.

The Wheeling & Lake Erie will upgrade and replace existing lights and gates at the Gilchrist Road crossing in Akron by Sept. 4, 2020.

CSX will install lights and gates and make the approach less steep at the Railroad Street crossing in Milton Center.

The carrier will also close the South Street crossing to vehicles and pedestrians in Milton Center by Dec. 4, 2020.

Federal funding will be provided for the upgrades, although W&LE will share funding responsibility for the Gilchrist Road project, PUCO said in a news release.
