Work will begin soon to repair the railroad crossing on Heaton Street or U.S. 35, in Knox.
Mayor Rick Chambers told the city council this week that he received several emails in the past two weeks from the Indiana Department of Transportation and Norfolk Southern Railroad. They’re waiting until the asphalt plants open up in April in order to form a plan of attack. There is no timeline of when the work will be complete. They want to repair the crossing with a hot asphalt mix instead of applying cold patch. The hot mix will ensure a more permanent fix.
Railroad employees have transported stone to the site in anticipation of repairs.
Until the crossing is repaired, any damage complaints should be forwarded to INDOT or Norfolk Southern.
