Railroad Crossing Complaints Discussed by Knox City Council


Knox Mayor Rick Chambers has been getting several complaints from motorists about the U.S 35 railroad crossing in the city.

A resident recently came into City Hall with an estimate to replace a hubcap lost as a result of the rough crossing. Mayor Chambers told the resident that the City does not maintain that crossing. The railroad crossing is under the jurisdiction of Norfolk Southern and the Indiana Department of Transportation. Those experiencing damage need to contact those two entities to submit a claim or report a complaint.

The U.S. 35 crossing has been brought up before the council where it was explained that not much can be done until the asphalt plants open to create a more permanent repair. Councilman Jeff Berg said that he would attempt to contact officials to help speed up the process.
