Columbiana County railroad upgrades

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio -

Two railroad crossings in Columbiana County will be getting a facelift this year. 

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio greenlit the project from the Ohio Rail Development Commission, allowing Norfolk Southern Railway to make the proposed improvements. 

The railroad will be installing lights and gates at the Bayard Road and the Essick Road crossing in West Township and has been instructed to complete the upgrades by October 10, 2019.

These improvements are federally funded and additional state funding is available for safety improvements such as rumble strips, illumination, improved signage, etc. near project locations.
