Long-awaited repairs to several railroad crossings in the city of Greencastle are set to begin this week, according to city officials.
City Attorney Laurie Hardwick told members of the City Council Tuesday night that she was contacted by a representative from CSX this week and was told the company plans to repair several crossings.
The list of crossing to receive work in the next couple of weeks, according the Hardwick, include:
* Liberty Street
* College Street
* Barnaby Mill Lane
* Madison Street
* Jacob Street
* Columbia Street
* Walnut Street
Hardwick said the CSX official told her the company will replace some railroad ties as well as some rails at those intersections. Also, they will reduce the grade at some crossings, to make them smoother for drivers as they cross the tracks.
"People will be very pleased not to have to deal with the difficulties of those areas anymore," Mayor Sue Murray said.
