Closure of railroad crossing dropped by city committee


The project will go hand in hand with the 25th Avenue North pump station project and later the sewer separation in the same area.

"I'm not trying to stymie development I just thought of it as a sort of philosophical safety thing," Craft said. "If you can close railroad crossings you always want to at least consider it, but having met with them it's not really up for discussion and it's really not going to be, I think, worth it. It would be different if we had maybe some death there or some major accidents, but we haven't seen that."

Craft plans to meet with CP officials to discuss other crossings that could be enhanced or closed.
