Interconnected Rail Signals will help downtown Warsaw

The article's title is "Rail replacement conduit will help downtown Warsaw signals alleviate traffic". I have changed it to something that makes more sense.

Norfolk Southern is replacing rail that runs through downtown Warsaw this summer, which will cause delays. But, the new rail could benefit traffic flow through those intersections in the future.

Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer tells News Now Warsaw’s IN the Know that conduit will be put down that connects the rail crossing gates with the street signals.

“For example, if there’s a long train that’s backing up traffic, when that train clears…the green [on the traffic signal] will stay on longer to try and clear those intersections,” he explains.

Ahhh small town northern Indiana. Gotta love it. I always thought the guard boxes on the courthouse green was an interesting aspect too. Just in case the Purple Gang would try to spring Da Boys from the Koskiusko County Jail.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.
