COLUMBUS, Ohio — Norfolk Southern has received authorization from the Ohio Rail Development Commission and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to install active warning devices at the Walbridge East Road and Township Road 68 grade crossing in Allen Township, the utilities commission recently announced.

The grade crossing improvement project will be completed by Aug. 30, 2018 and is federally funded.

Similarly, the commission has also approved a request by CSX Transportation to extend the completion date of the rail crossing upgrade at High Street and State Route 229 in the village of Ashley. That project will be completed by March 31, 2018.

The commission is responsible for evaluating Ohio’s public grade crossings to determine the need for new safety warning equipment. Ohio’s state grade crossing safety fund allows railroads and other entities to apply for grant funding for such improvements. The state typically awards up to $5,000 per project.
