McCord Road underpass project moving forward

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - The Lucas County Engineer's office is moving forward with plans to build a $35 million underpass along McCord Rd. to eliminate dangers involving cars, pedestrians and trains on the Norfolk-Southern rail line.

Work is scheduled to begin in September, 2014.

Before then, the family of Cody Brown is calling for safety upgrades before that work starts. Cody was killed in 2009 while crossing tracks trying to get to school.

Temporary measures may include new warning lights and signs, and recruiting volunteer crossing guards.
