DOT, Stanly maintenance work on railroad crossing improvements

Drivers traveling on N.C. 70 between New London and Badin in Stanly County are enjoying a smoother ride due to recent railroad crossing improvements.

Several potholes were filled, and old crossing materials were replaced with new asphalt and rubber rail seal, creating a smoother ride for those crossing the railroad tracks, according to DOT.

The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Rail Division and the agency’s Stanly County maintenance crews worked with the Atlantic Railway on this crossing improvement.
