Railway crossing at Northeast 119th Street due for improvements



Glenwood — Approximately $106,000 in upgrades are headed for the Northeast 119th Street railway crossing at 100th Avenue. New track, structure and surface materials, hardwood cross ties and concrete surface panels will be installed. The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission has approved $20,000 from its Grade Crossing Protective Fund for the project, and Clark County will pay for improvements beyond that. The work should be completed by the end of the year. According to the commission, the road carries 1,900 vehicles per day, including 27 schools buses. Freight trains cross the site twice a day at 10 mph.
