MARTIN COUNTY — Digging a trench under the railroad tracks at Monterey Road and building an overpass over the tracks at Indian Street would make those crossings safer for traffic, according to a consultant’s report.
They also would come with hefty price tags, part of a $160 million package of railroad crossing upgrades sought by county officials.
A proposed $4.7 million crossing on St. Lucie Avenue in downtown Stuart could be turned into a local attraction, Weidner said.
The crossing would take away four downtown parking spaces but would give pedestrians an alternate, safer route near Sailfish Circle, Weidner said.
