Fort Collins, CO: Crossing delays set to fall as trains for UP rerouted

13 Oct

OmniTRAX subsidiary Great Western Railway is set to interchange with Union Pacific in Greeley rather than Fort Collins where average delays to road users at level crossings on Lemay and Riverside avenues stand at more than five minutes per train, with more extensive delays seen as routine. The change is made possible by a USD14 million project to rebuild the dormant right-of-way between Windsor and Greeley which should complete in the first quarter of 2016. Some trains will continue through Fort Collins as the Great Western Railway also exchanges traffic with the BNSF Railway.
