The week before last, the Ashcake Road crossing was closed for a week, as CSX removed the old, worn out crossing and replaced it with a new concrete crossing designed to last longer and provide a smooth ride over the rails. Next week, the same thing will be done with the England Street crossing.
Yes, it was a hassle with all the detours, and next week will also prove to be a disruption to the normal flow of traffic through town during the week. But the new crossings should prove to be a worthwhile upgrade.
Now that the new Ashcake Road crossing has been open for a little over a week, have you driven across it yet? What do you think? Let us know!
