REPORT OF PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF URBAN RAILROAD PROBLEMS FOR BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA
In the course of studying provision of ambulance and fire service to portions of the city which could be isolated by presence of trains on either of two railroads traversing the city, Bloomington obtained assistance from the Federal Railroad Administration's methodology as detailed in "Urban Railroad Relocation." This led to a broader study than originally planned. The recommended short range approach includes investigation of a communication facility indicating status of grade crossings, consideration of an emergency vehicle overpass and improvements at existing crossings to reduce highway user costs. Long range approaches recommended are grade crossing eliminations and possible relocation of one of the railroads on to the right-of-way of the other.
