Gibson Co. Crossing Upgrade Scheduled for 2014

State highway officials say safety upgrades will be made next year to a railroad crossing in Gibson County where two people have died in the past two years.

The county has received written confirmation from INDOT that work on the crossing south of Princeton will include gates, train-activated warning bells and train speed-based flashing signals.

The Princeton Daily Clarion reports the safety upgrades were first proposed in 2011 after a fatal car-train collision killed a Fort Branch woman.

A 4-year-old girl also died there August 6th when a train struck a van driven by her father.
INDOT says work on the crossing will begin around May.
