Gulfport Crossings Will Stay Open

A dozen railroad crossings are not closing in Gulfport, at least not right now. The city council voted on a resolution Tuesday to keep twelve crossings open.

The resolution will be sent to the legislature. C-S-X Railroad and the department of transportation recommended the closures to decrease the number of accidents at train crossings. ]

C-S-X and M-Dot want a total of 30 crossings closed along the coast.
