Letter to the editor - Pave the crossings
Placeholder Image

Dear Editor: I was reading the paper and I see that the City of Covington is going to pave over the (abandoned) rail road crossings inside the city.

I think that will help with traffic. I think that it will help most of all with the traffic around Eastside High School.

I for one would like to see the county do the same thing to the railroad crossings in Newton County that are not being used by the railroad company.

If they are not being used, then why is the county not just paving them over?

The railroad crossing just makes for more traffic in the county. The county could do the same and help with the traffic in Newton County.
