Federal Official Says City Estimate "Excessive" For Fixing Problem
|Keith Reester, Director of
Public Works, City of Loveland
|Mayor Pielin joked the trains in Ft.
Collins could be raced and recognized the
large number of residents concerned
about this issue.
|These "quad gates" and flashers (left) are
considered the safest barrier to traffic for
trains as cars cannot wind through them
when they don't see the train coming.

proposed to receive the quad gates
according to Reester's memo would be
1st at Railroad Ave, 4th at Railroad
Ave, 6th at Railroad Ave, 7th at
Railroad Ave, 10th at Railroad 29th
Street and Lakecrest Place. Garfield
and 22nd would receive a 6 gate
Intersections not proposed for quad
gates in the cost estimate are County
Road 16 at Roosevelt, 14th Street at
Roosevelt, 37th near Butternut
