In Lake Twp. CSX offers cash to close crossing road

Ken Gilsdorf, community affairs and safety representative for CSX, submitted the offer last week in a letter to the trustees.

“CSX Transportation would like to make a cash incentive offer to permanently close Walbridge Road and turn it into a private road owned by CSX Transportation,” the letter says.

Conditions of the closure are:
• CSX will place a barricade across the private grade crossing at its own expense and motor vehicles will not be permitted to use it.

• CSX will allow fire, police, and emergency medical service vehicles to use the private crossing in an emergency when “practicable,” the letter says. “This may not be feasible in an emergency situation if our train crews cannot clear up the grade crossing in a reasonable time.”

• CSX will remove public crossing warning devices and replace them with private warning devices at its expense.

• Road closed signs will be placed on both sides of the street.

 
Lake High School still adjusting to off campus site

For Lake High School, it has been a year of adjustments for students and administrators. The district raced against the clock to open a new high school facility on the Owens Community College Campus after the June 5 EF4 tornado destroyed the high school building.

Principal Lee Herman said, for the most part, the transition for staff and students has been fairly smooth.

“It is going pretty well,” Herman said. “Kids are resilient. The first few days of classes was kind of like freshman orientation for everyone. Everyone had to figure out where their classes were, etc. For the short amount of time we had to get the school up and running, it really is going well.”

In June, Owens offered the Lake Local Schools the college’s former Owens Center for Development and Training building, located on Tracy Rd., in Northwood, to house a temporary high school.

According to Herman, the district placed temporary walls inside the building to create enough classrooms to house the 450 students in grades 9-12. As a result, hallways became narrower and an “odd traffic pattern” took some getting used to.
