With Hearing

[32 Pa.B. 295]

   C-20016238.  Borough of Canonsburg v. Pittsburgh and Ohio Central Railroad. Complainant states the borough operates and maintains a public road known as Shupe Street sometime referred to as Iron Street. The borough of Canonsburg Street Department has maintained the approaches to said crossing for 50 years or more without any complaint by the respondent railroad company or its predecessors in title. Pittsburgh and Ohio Central Railroad is now threatening to barricade said crossing by placing ''Jersey Barricades'' across the street unless and until the various users of said crossing agree to a private agreement requiring fees to be paid each year forever. It is the information and belief of the complainant that respondent railroad company can no longer restrict the use of the crossing due to the continuous use by the general public. The complainant wants the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to issue an order: (1) stopping the respondent from its threatened shut down of said crossing by use of ''Jersey Barricades''; (2) permitting the Borough of Canonsburg to continue maintaining the approaches to said Shupe Street (or Iron Street Extension); and (3) permitting the general public, industry and school district to use said crossing as in the past.

   An initial hearing on this matter will be held Tuesday, February 26, 2002, at 10 a.m. in an 11th floor hearing room, Pittsburgh State Office Building, 300 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, when and where all persons in interest may appear and be heard, if they so desire.
