TOUGH LOCATIONS IS CHOSEN FOR NEW-TYPE ROAD XING

Railbound concrete slabs were installed where heavy vehicular traffic from steel plant crosses over railroad diamond crossing. At the site selected for the crossing-slab installation the road from the steel plant uses the deck of a railroad lift bridge over the channel. Making a sharp turn to the left, this road crosses the railroad diamond crossing at an angle. Road traffic includes about 240 daily runs of heavy (60 tons) slag trucks, 20 coke-loaded trucks from the screening operation, 1000 automobiles steel-loaded flatbeds and a 64-ton pay-loader with chain-wrapped rubber-tires.
