NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WFFT) — The city of New Haven is known for trains crossing throughout the day causing roadblocks along the way, but officials and the community say it is an issue that continues to increase.
New Haven Mayor McMichael says he has been in contact with Norfolk Southern representatives "for an extended time regarding network operation issues that have caused an increase in crossings being blocked."
The crossing issue, according to Norfolk Southern, isn't just a problem within the city of New Haven but across their entire railroad system.
McMichael says they have been working together to find a possible solution and will continue to have an open dialogue addressing the concerns of the city and its residents.
According to McMichael, the city is working with local, county, state and federal partners to resolve this issue with Norfolk Southern.
Leaders want to remind residents, to not call 911 to report blocked trains and instead report them directly to Norfolk Southern either online or by telephone.
