Finally, after years of headaches, CSX has decided they will remove old and deteriorated rail lines that have made driving dangerous on Hyde Park Boulevard.

 

Drivers says it’s been a problem for years, but Councilman Bill Kennedy says that residents became fed up and more vocal about the issue after this when winter ended and the streets were exposed again.

“The problem is they’re no longer used, so they’re no longer maintained. The road dips when the rail lines are, and both metal and wood are exposed. Drivers must slow down or risk damaging their cars,” said Kennedy.

Niagara Falls officials say CSX has been slow to own up to the problem until recently.

After seemingly banging the drum for months, pressure from residents and city officials forced CSX to act.

CSX will be responsible for removing the tracks, and then the City of Niagara Falls will be responsible for paving over the area.

The Council hopes to have the project done by the end of July.
