Councilman Mulvihill today announced Buechel railroad-crossing gates are operational

December 21, 2015

Louisville – Councilman Pat Mulvihill (D-10) today announced the railroad-crossing gates at a dangerous intersection in Buechel are operational.

          The Councilman issued the following statement:

          “I want to thank Norfolk Southern Railroad for completing this work before the Christmas holiday.  Now, it is up to drivers to make sure that they obey the new warning signals and gates.  It’s a matter of life or death.”

          The railroad crossing gates were installed because of fatalities and injuries at Crawford Avenue and Buechel Avenue, which have occurred over the years.  Norfolk Southern began installation in November after signing an agreement of understanding with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
