Dangerous Crossing To Get Revamp

MassDOT is paying for safety upgrades  at a railroad crossing in Longmeadow where five people have died since  1975.  

Most recently, a public works employee was killed in a collision  with a train at the crossing in March of 2017.  

About  seven-hundred-thousand dollars from the transportation department will  cover the majority of the cost to install gates and warning lights.   

Amtrak, which owns the rail line, will pay for the remainder.

It is unclear when specifically the construction will begin.
