Grade Crossing Closing Gets PUCO Approval

November 28, 2015

CSX has received the approval of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to close a grade crossing in Morrow County near Galion.

Located at Bloomingrove-New Winchester Road in Washington Township, PUCO officials said the crossing ranks as the 110th most dangerous in Ohio out of 5,800 crossings.

A PUCO investigation determined that the crossing was particularly dangerous because of the level of train traffic, the speed at which the trains travel through the crossing, the lack of flashing lights and gates, poor sight distances, the unusual angle of approach and the distance between two sets of tracks.

The crossing is located on the Indianapolis Line of CSX between Galion and Marion.
