Concern Raised Over Blocked Railroad Crossings During an Emergency

Concerns over rail traffic blocking all three railroad crossings in Big Lake have risen on and off throughout the past 10 years as the oil boom brought more and more business to the community’s rail line.

Those concerns are hitting another high point early in 2017 as all three crossings in town are being blocked for extended periods of time.

Marco Gomez, a Big Lake resident who has brought the issue up on Facebook in the past, said the problem is about more than just the inconvenience.
