Ohio rail commission to upgrade three grade crossings

The Ohio Rail Development Commission (ORDC) recently asked the state's Public Utilities Commission to authorize engineering and construction work for three grade crossing upgrades.

The commission plans to replace crossbuck signs with state-of-the-art warning lights and gates at a Norfolk Southern Railway crossing near Cortland; a Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Co. crossing near Zoar; and a R.J. Corman Railroad Group crossing near Strasburg.

An independent Ohio Department of Transportation agency, ORDC oversees freight and passenger railroad issues, grade crossing safety, and rail travel and tourism.
