(Michigan City, IN) - Drivers are going to be better warned about some railroad crossings that will practically jar your teeth loose if traveling over them too fast. Warning signs in Michigan City are going to be posted at the rough crossings on Ohio St. and Tilden Ave.
City Councilman Don Pryzbylinski, who made the request for the signage, said he sees the damage to vehicles like fallen mufflers and catalytic converters while traveling over the Tilden Avenue crossing quite a bit. “I stop and pick that material up so people don’t flat tires going over those crossings,” he said. He said drivers could also lose control of their vehicles if they don’t slow before venturing over the crossings.
Officials said they’ve been in contact with the CSX Railroad but they’re not sure when those crossings might be repaired.
