Railroad, Sallisaw spar over crossings at hearing

Kansas City Southern Railway and the city of Sallisaw are fighting over the tracks.

The railroad is asking the Oklahoma Corporation Commission to let its trains block one crossing at a time in Sallisaw for up to an hour.

The city has complained that the railroad already is violating a ten-minute limit. And its opposing a possible compromise to allow a
one-hour variance at one crossing at a time.

An administrative law judge heard arguments today on the issue.

A recommendation is expected to be issued to the commission in about a month.
