Communities Benefited:

  • Dolton


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.
