Committee: Crossing gates should stay
Placeholder Image
MONROE - The City of Monroe Public Safety Committee is recommending the city get on board with Badger State Ethanol in requesting the railroad crossings barrier gates on Wisconsin 69 in Monroe not be replaced. The Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Railroads determined in early September that barrier gates at four railroad crossings in the state had to be replaced with conventional, break-away gates for the good of public safety. The other three barrier gate crossings are in Dane County.
