BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Their complaints are not falling on deaf ears. Finally some results for some folks working in an industrial area of north Baton Rouge. Soon, their cars and their patience could run a little more smoothly.
9 News investigated the road crossing the railroad tracks at South Choctaw Drive and Sorrell Avenue had gotten so bad, vehicles were actually getting stuck.
Drivers say they're having to buy new tires more often, and they don't feel safe.
"Railroad crossing notoriously dangerous anyway," said Barbara Stewart. "Then you got an added problem to it. I need someone to come solve the problem for us."
Chief Traffic Engineer Ingolf Partenheimer says after his department received complaints, there was some moving and shuffling.
"When we noticed what the problem was, went ahead got the council to allow the mayor to sign-provide us the money to actually do the repair," said Partenheimer.
The materials to repair the intersection are now sitting next to the tracks, ready to go.
Partenheimer says any day now, pending Canadian National Railroad's schedule, and the mayor's approval, the crossing should be repaired.
"Sometimes with our shifting soils, we do have issues but we do try and inspect them twice a year and we don't like to have these things sneak up on us," added Partenheimer.
