Here's the place to just kick back and discuss pretty much anything under the sun.

Grade crossings on the HD, west side

Post by Hotbox » Wed Oct 25, 2017 4:37 pm

So, what gives with the delay of work replacing rail on the Huntington District, west side of town?

New sections of rail were laid on the ballast along the north main months ago, AND they just dug trenches in the asphalt across the grade crossings at Brooklyn and Nutman avenues dropped the rail in, and then just coldpatched between the existing rail and the new rail. Both crossings are a night mare to drive across.

At first I just suspected they placed the rail temporarily intending to come back in a day or two to do the swap. but it's been laying there for months.
