The State of Indiana, City of Columbus, Bartholomew County, Louisville & Indianapolis Railroad and CSX partnered on the Columbus Railroad Project. The innovative project is designed to ensure safe transportation for all residents, to support economic development and retain jobs and to support the safe and economical transportation of goods and supplies through our community. You and other residents will note major improvements at the intersection located at State Road 46 and Indiana 11, the main entrance point to our city for many travelers and commuters. These improvements have the potential to cause significant traffic delays.
Representatives of the City have worked with the Louisville and Indiana Railroad and CSX Railroad to ensure that the trains will not exceed 20 MPH speeds due to the tight curves in Mill Race Park.
