If you drive down 11th Street near Lewis in Tulsa, watch out for a costly railroad crossing.

The Union Pacific Railroad crossing has frustrated a number of drivers, who now face hefty repair bills because of the unexpected jolt. Sandi Clugston says when she hit the rough crossing, it sheered three bolts that held up the engine in her Jeep. “I'm going to have to pay to get this fixed and I'm hoping I can somehow get some help with it. I don't want to have to pay $300 just to drive down the road."

The city of Tulsa has contacted the railroad about the crossing. The railroad is responsible for maintenance. But the city may fill in a few spots on the crossing with asphalt to make for a smoother ride.
