GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The Federal Railroad Administration is taking comments about trains blocking crossings.

It’s long been a hot-button issue in Gibson County, and, it has been said, that getting stuck behind a train in the county is just a way of life.

In May, we checked in with Gibson Co. residents on the issue in the wake of a decision by the Indiana Supreme Court’s decision regarding how long train companies can block railroad crossings.

The sheriff’s office says crossings can sometimes be blocked for hours or days at a time and that’s a big problem when it comes to public safety.
