Thanks for the heads up!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I did contact Mayor Taylor regarding these train overpasses. He very diligently sent letters to both Senator Brown and the railroad companies detailing the dangerous problems and demanding that they fix them in a timely manner.

I'm not sure if this will lead to a final solution, but my hat's off to the Mayor for continuing to try and get them to do something about it.

You're not far off the mark with your comment about legal action. The railroad company is responsible for upkeep, but for years they have refused. It's starting to become a safety issue though, and I've talked at length with Mayor Taylor about getting them to do something about it. Thanks for the comment!

I agree, they aren't very nice to look at. I'll ask the building department about who owns it and who is responsible for their upkeep. No promises, but it would be nice to at least know whose responsibility it is to keep them in good repair.
