Crossing Needs F xing
The Washington Stree railroad
crossing seems to need some improve
ment. While the driveWay is lev
eled up and in god shape for those
who drive, for the walking public it
is a case of walking in the middle
of the road or taking the sidewalk,
where you have to jump the rails and
a switch frog. The thing which seems
to be most needed is to extend the
plank far enough to include the side
walk. /
