[ARCHIVED] City Officials Reach Out to Federal Railroad Administration

rr letter

A letter was sent on Friday, October 16, 2020 signed by Edwardsville Mayor John McTaggart addressed to the Regional Administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration. Elected officials and City staff have serious concerns regarding the recent series of trains blocking all three Edwardsville crossings, just south of K-32. When the City is not notified of these closings, it causes delays in public safety response, potentially creating life threatening situations that could be avoided.

The City hopes by reaching out to the agencies with the appropriate oversight meaningful corrections can be put in place.
