Galion and Morrow County residents voice concerns over closure

1 days 5 hours ago | | | Email

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio hosted public hearings in Galion and Mount Gilead on July 15 to hear public testimony regarding the proposed closure of a railroad crossing.CSX Transportation, Inc. filed a petition in March to close the crossing on Bloomingrove-New Winchester Road (Morrow-Crawford County Line Road). It is located south of Galion and west of State Route 309.In the petition, CSX cites low traffic volume and potentially dangerous site distance as the primary reasons for closure. It also states the closure “will not cause unreasonable inconvenience to the public because it is a redundant crossing and all vehicular traffic can be diverted to adjacent roads…”
