County Line Railroad Crossing Update
Due to concerns expressed regarding the delayed emergency services response times that could be experienced and the limited access to town during the viaduct phase of INDOT's project, Norfolk Southern has postponed the closing of the County Line Road crossing until later this summer. A big thank you to Tony Kaser of Rieth-Riley, Gregg Kowalski of INDOT, and to Norfolk Southern for all of their work to help us resolve this issue.
