Camilleri calls attention to extended delays at Downriver railroad crossings

Thursday, March 28, 2019

WOODHAVEN — After receiving live updates yesterday from a Downriver resident  forced to wait two hours and five minutes at Woodhaven’s Van Horn Road railroad crossing, state Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township) released the following statement:

“Yesterday, drivers in Woodhaven were stopped for two hours because of trains at the Van Horn and Allen railroad crossings, again highlighting the pervasiveness of Downriver’s train problem. This isn’t just an economic problem or an issue of public safety; it’s a headache that folks across Downriver face every single day.

“We must build a bridge at the Van Horn railroad crossing, and voters in Woodhaven have a chance to make their voices heard on this issue in May. Regardless of the outcome, I will be working with anyone and everyone I can to find funding for this important project, which will finally bring relief and peace of mind to thousands of people in our community.”
