Mayor announces actions with CSX to Improve Train Stops and Blockages:
Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. announced today that he and other city officials have been in discussions and meetings with CSX Transportation officials to address the extensive time trains have been blocking city intersections. The last meeting was held February 12, 2018 at City Hall. In his announcement Mayor Broderick stated “a mutual agreement has been reached that is expected to reduce the blockages and t...he amount of train traffic that is moving through our city during peak traffic periods.”
Mayor Broderick stated, “This has been an ongoing problem that has increased recently due to changes made by CSX at the corporate level in Florida. We are pleased that the CSX officials recognized our concerns and are willing to work with us in working towards a reasonable resolution.”
Mayor Broderick explained that during the meeting he and the other officials present expressed their concerns as well as the concerns of city citizens and urged CSX to take action.
CSX representatives apologized for the difficulties and agreed to take immediate action that is expected to reduce train traffic in the city by 30%. As part of this reduction, CSX has agreed to cancel the a.m. train that has been blocking several intersections in the morning, including those at Scatterfield Road; and will, when possible, adjust the afternoon train entry into the city to better coincide with scheduled train work, which will result in shorter waiting times at the crossings.
Broderick stated he learned yesterday that CSX is following through on their commitment and have turned in the documentation to move the morning train. “This is a great first step that will improve traffic movement in our city and improve our public safety to insure fire and police first responders can remain effective,” said Broderick.
Broderick also said that he is optimistic that progress will occur, but will take further action if the agreed upon changes are not implemented or are determined to not be effective.
Broderick said the changes should be in effect by the end of next week.
If there is a train stopped for longer than code allows, please fill out a complaint at: https://www.csx.com/index.cfm/about-us/contact-us/
Under the Indiana code a train should not block an intersection more than 10 minutes under normal circumstances.
