PUCO Orders LED Lights at NS Grade Crossings

Norfolk Southern has been directed by the Ohio Public Utilities Commission to install LED lights on signals at 100 grade crossings.

PUCO will pay $750,000 to install the lights with NS responsible for costs exceeding $7,500 per crossing.

The grade crossings are located in Cuyahoga, Erie, Fulton, Lorain, Lucas, Ottawa, Williams and Wood counties. The work is expected to be completed by June 2023.

Funding for PUCO’s share of the costs is coming from a state LED upgrade program established in 2012.

The existing 8-inch incandescent lights at the crossing signals will be replaced by 12-inch LED lights at crossings equipped with flashing light signal systems.
