The railroad is responsible for maintenance of the crossing on Shoe Factory Road and has been notified of the crossing condition. CN has this on a list of locations needing repair but have not provided a specific schedule. When this information is available, it will be posted here. The Illinois Commerce Commission is also aware of the crossing condition. While the crossing is located in the Village, the Village has no jurisdictional authority over railroad operations. This is covered at the State level by the Illinois Commerce Commission and at the Federal level by the Surface Transportation Board.
