This project proposes to install centerline channelization devices 100-feet either side of the railroad tracks at the Cliffside Drive crossing. The centerline channelization devices will provide supplemental safety and mitigate for the loss of the train horn once a quiet zone is established. The project will also include shoulder maintenance and upgrades to the railroad crossing warning lights.
