Track crossing a smooth surprise

Several weeks ago my wife and I drove to Home Goods in Genelle. In order to get there we had to drive over the railway tracks. Around our area we know that we better really slow down to avoid the bumpy surface.

That was not the case here. Whoever was responsible for this crossing did an excellent job and deserves credit for it. The crossing was, without a doubt, the smoothest one in our entire area.

It’s too bad that rail crossings closer to Fruitvale and area couldn’t be fixed in the same way.

Those of us regularly driving over them know how badly they need attention.
