RP3 (glennolcerst@gmail.com) asks that neighbors PLEASE take a few minutes to write to our city and state representatives (contacts below) to demand:

  • A freeze of the $20 million in Pittsburgh Vertical Clearance Project Funding;
  • a repair, not a replacement, of the bridges, since their current height is grandfathered;
  • an investigation into Norfolk Southern’s rail and bridge inspection practices;
  • an investigation into the installation of 5 million nearly untraceable defective rail ties;
  • an Environmental Impact Study that includes, air, noise and vibration;
  • distribution of the above results to the public;
  • Positive Train Controls throughout the 20 mile route of the Pgh Vertical Clearance Project/Allegheny County (with agreement for a backup PTC system when that system is offline for maintenance;
  • creation of emergency response plans funded by Norfolk Southern;
  • enhanced oil spill regulations;
  • a true public town hall meeting attended by Norfolk Southern and our elected representatives, despite Norfolk Southern announcing this week there will be no more public meetings.
