High Bridge Line

Postby RS115 » Mon Jun 22, 2009 9:28 pm

I noticed yesterday that sometime in the last week or so (I suspect later in the week but didn't travel this section of Rt 10 as much as I usually do last week) flashing lights were installed beneath the cross-bucks on the crossing over Route 10. Don't know if they're active yet but they are uncovered and properly faced to be so. So, while it's still a little surprising to me that the next local road down the line (forget the name) has 4 quadrant gates and lights, it's nice to know that the crew is at least as protected as they are crossing Route 46.

CJ - any idea who footed the bill? County or state grant?

All crossing protection devices are typically paid for by the NJDOT or the railroad. I am not aware of any County money involved with that crossing.
