[ARCHIVED] Railroad Crossing Safety

Railroad Crossing

Railroad crossing safety is important to the City of Portage, having 10 railroad crossings within city limits.
Operation Lifesaver, Inc (OLI), is a non-profit organization and nationally-recognized leader in rail safety education. Since 1972, OLI has been committed to preventing collisions, injuries, and fatalities on and around railroad tracks and highway-rail grade crossings, with the support of public education programs in states across the U.S. Every three hours in the United States, a person or vehicle is struck by a train. OLI's website contains a vast amount of educational materials.
