Cottage Grove & Indiana Harbor Belt/CSX Grade Separation
|E 142nd St.
128 freight trains
Daily, 5,100 vehicles pass through the crossing. This project will reduce roadway congestion and improve safety at this location. The grade crossing separation will eliminate delay to approximately 1,300 vehicles daily, resulting in alleviation of over 26,000 annual motorist hours of delay. It will also eliminate the potential for collisions between vehicles and trains.
Scope of Work
The project will consider eliminating the at-grade crossing of Cottage Grove and the four Indiana Harbor Belt (IHB) and CSX tracks. This will be accomplished by creating either an overpass or underpass for vehicles at this location.
