From Aug. 14 through Aug. 15, work crews from railroad companies Amtrak and CSX Transportation rebuilt four railroad “diamond” crossings at Wayne Junction near Wayne, Michigan – crossings jointly owned by the Michigan Department of Transportation and CSX.

The agency said it paid 25 percent of the cost to replace those crossings – used by roughly six Amtrak passenger trains per day as well as by up to 16 CSX and Norfolk Southern freight trains per day travelling between Chicago, Illinois and Detroit, Michigan and Pontiac, Michigan – while CSX covered the remaining 75 percent.
