Docket Number: FRA–2009–0046. Applicant: Paducah & Louisville Railway, Inc., Mr. C.D. Edwards, General Supervisor of Signals and Structures, 1400 Bell Avenue, Paducah, Kentucky 42003. The Paducah & Louisville Railway, Inc. (P&L) seeks approval of the proposed discontinuance and removal of signal locations between Milepost (MP) J 22.0 and MP J 45.0, and replacing with new signal and track circuitry. The locations are between West Point, Kentucky, MP J 22.0 and North Cecilia, Kentucky, MP J 45.0. The proposal consists of retiring nine back-to-back signal locations between MP J 22 and MP J 45, and replacing with six back-toback signal locations. Electro Code II track circuitry is to be replaced with Electro Code 5 track circuitry. The signals to be removed are: J234, J235; J262, J261; NBH, J283; J308, SBH; J238, J239; J356, J355; J382, J381; J408, J407; and J432, J433. The signals to be installed are: J250, J251; NBH, J283; J308, SBH; J346, J345; J382, J381; and J420, J421. The reason given for the proposed changes is to improve safety of train operation and reduce the cost of testing, and maintenance. Any interested party desiring to protest the granting of an application shall set forth specifically the grounds upon which the protest is made, and include a concise statement of the interest of the party in the proceeding. Additionally, one copy of the protest shall be furnished to the applicant at the address listed above. FRA expects to be able to determine these matters without an oral hearing. However, if a specific request for an oral hearing is accompanied by a showing that the party is unable to adequately present his or her position by written statements, an application may be set for public hearing. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested party desires an opportunity for oral comment, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request.
