Description

Reporters looking into railroad crossings in Lehigh Valley found that, of the 750 crossings found, less than half are marked with signs. From 1989 to 1998, there were 76 accidents and 23 deaths at these unmarked crossings. The state transportation agency keeps no priority list of dangerous crossings and frequently spends money earmarked for such improvements on other projects.
