Castle Shannon Borough, Pa
We have been experiencing chronic intermittent issues with the gate crossings at the Willow Ave and Grove Rd LRT crossing in Castle Shannon.
The gates come down when there is no LRT traffic prompting the intersection closing.
In an effort to remediate the accompanying traffic snarls when this happens, the Port Authority has pinned the gates up.
Vehicle traffic on Grove Rd must treat flashing red railroad crossing signals as a stop sign, and look both ways before crossing the tracks.
Likewise, LRT drivers have been instructed to stop before crossing Grove Road and yield to vehicle traffic.
