37Walter Strawn Dr. railroad crossing closure near Elwood, IL The gates at Walter Strawn Drive railroad crossing near the BNSF-Elwood intermodal were broken nearly 50 times in 2013.Originally permitted for up to 1800 trucks per day, current volume is 8,000 trucks per day.Walter Strawn Drive crosses Union Pacific tracks which Amtrak uses, those tracks are designated high speed rail, this year those passenger trains will be going even faster
38Walter Strawn Dr. railroad crossing closure near Elwood, IL There are overweight grain permits and overweight non-grain permits (divisible loads)Need 3 permits:State of Illinois overweight permitWill County overweight permitVillage of Elwood overweight permitWill county allows grain overweight, but doesn’t allow non-grain overweight.Will county controls Arsenal Road, not the State
39Walter Strawn Dr. railroad crossing closure near Elwood, IL Why did Village of Elwood even offer non-grain overweight permits creating all the truck traffic on Walter Strawn?“I want to assure Elwood residents that overweight trucks will not be tolerated on any village roadway. Walter Strawn was the only Route 53 access for overweight trucks and was so heavily traveled for that reason. The only remaining overweight route is through Interstate 55. The new interchange at Arsenal Road was designed to accommodate these trucks.” William Offerman, Village President January 2015False statement, no option to legally dray non-grain overweight containers out of BNSF-Elwood because Will County doesn’t permit divisible loads.
