Benefits

Daily, 10,000 vehicles pass through the crossing. 115th Street is a primary arterial roadway and this project will reduce roadway congestion and improve safety at this location. The grade crossing separation will eliminate delay to over 1,200 vehicles daily, resulting in alleviation of over 9,600 annual motorist hours of delay. It will also eliminate the potential for collisions between vehicles and trains.
