Communities along the 106½-mile route that carries the Louisville & Indiana Railroad between Indianapolis and Louisville know they’re in for a change if a federal agency approves a $90 million upgrade.
At least one of those communities — Columbus — has started talking about building an overpass to carry State Road 46 over the railroad. That overpass would alleviate delays caused by what could be a dozen or more new trains expected to use the line each day.
Jackson County officials, however, have launched an effort to open a second ambulance station on the east side of the tracks. That’s where 63 percent of the ambulance runs in the city were made in 2013.
