Railroad crossing dispute steams ahead

— Talks about the three crossings have been going on or about thelast three years. The railroad lies in the state’s proposed high speed rail corridor, meaning that in the future trains could be traveling those tracks at faster speeds than the cars that travel them now, making the crossings a safety issue.

“We operate through more than 1,100 communities across the United States and Canada and being part of the community is an important part of our company. Our concern is that these crossings were safety concerns but at the same time we wanted to work with local residents, local officials and the Department of Transportation to find some workable solution. We didn’t want tohave any residents …landlocked,” said Greenberg.

“It’s been a process… We recognize that sometimes discussions around important matters like this do take time. We’re pleased we’ve come this far in terms of the two crossings with just that one last crossing that remains for further discussion,” said Greenberg.

A representative for Canadian Pacific will be in attendance atthe hearing.

Thehearing will take place in Community Room 323 at the Town Hall on March 28 beginning at 9 a.m
