The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) last week approved construction authorization from the Ohio Rail Development Commission directing Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Co. (W&LE) to upgrade a rail crossing in Crawford County.

The project calls for W&LE to install lights and gates at the East Main Street/State Route 103 crossing in New Washington. The railroad is directed to complete the work by Oct. 24, 2019, PUCO officials said in a press release.

The railroad and commission will share funding for the upgrades.

To increase public safety during project construction, local governments may seek funding from the PUCO for the cost of safety improvements such as rumble strips, illumination, improved signage or other enhancements at the project locations.
