Tassone chats with Schumer about RR crossing

— “If CSX closes down Old Liverpool Road to make repairs at the crossing, it could be a problem because commercial vehicles are now banned from the [Onondaga Lake] Parkway,” White said.

The Parkway, also known as Route 370, is the main thoroughfare connecting the city of Syracuse with the northern suburbs, but Old Liverpool Road is now the favored byway for commercial vehicles. Commercial traffic was banned from the Parkway last year after several buses and trucks collided with the CSX railroad bridge that passes over the road at a height of 10 feet, nine inches.

Why CSX?

The CSX railroad got its three-letter name from two source RR systems and one colloquial abbreviation.

The C stands for the Chessie System, Inc. The S represents the Seaboard System RR. And the X is a shortened for of “express.”

One positive candidate

Everybody’s fed up with the sheer volume of negative advertising in the 24thCongressional race. But are voters angry enough to turn their displeasure into a vote for positive change?

If you’re truly saddened and sickened by the nasty name-calling you should consider voting for the one candidate who refuses to indulge in such shameful media mud-slinging.

Do what I’m going to do on Nov. 6, and cast your ballot for Green Party congressional candidate Ursula Rozum
