This afternoon, the Rollins Road railroad crossing began experiencing signal problems. It’s possible, but unconfirmed, that the line was severed during installation of the temporary soil retention system for the new bridge abutments at Rollins Road. The railroad is currently working on diagnosing the problem and coming up with a solution.
In the meantime, they will have to use alternate means to safely allow the trains to cross Rollins. For now, that means the conductors walking the train across, so please use caution at the crossing.
UPDATE: The railroad crossing signals at Rollins have been restored. The problem cable has not been repaired yet, but they were able to reroute the detection for SB trains to allow the signals to function. This does force the SB trains to reduce their speeds to 25 MPH until the cable is restored, so you will notice them moving more slowly for the time being.
