The city is applying for a V-DOT Highway Safety Improvement Grant to improve safety at the railroad crossing on South Avenue, closest to South Main Street and to the crossing at Kratzer Road.
The improvements include rubberization of the track on South Avenue. Flashing lights and gate arms will be placed on Kratzer Road.
If the grant is approved, the city will have to pay 10-percent of the costs.
