FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2014– 0045. Applicant: Wisconsin Central Limited, Mr. Thomas L. Brasseur, Manager S&C, Engineering Department, Southern Region, 1625 Depot Street, Stevens Point, WI 54481. WC, a subsidiary of Canadian National Railway (CN), seeks approval of the proposed discontinuance and removal of a traffic control system (TCS) between Milepost (MP) 1.7, (North Collingwood) and MP 1.0 (South Collingwood) on the Missabe Subdivision, Duluth, MN. The TCS will be removed between northward approach signals A8R, A6R, and A18R and the Collingwood northward absolute signals. All TCS listed will be changed to yard limits. Control Points (CP) North Collingwood, Collingwood, and South Collingwood will be reconfigured into one, CP Collingwood, by the elimination of existing controlled switches, the installation of a new controlled switch, and the removal of controlled signals that govern movements over track with no associated switches. New TCS limits will begin and end at CP Collingwood. The reason for the proposed changes is that the northward signals and the associated track circuits for the approach to Collingwood present a safety hazard to employees as well as the motoring public on Interstate 35 (I– 35). Part of this section is located on the ore docks over I–35, which results in no place of safety in which an employee can clear the tracks due to the drop-off on each side. If an employee were to slip and fall, the fall could potentially be onto I–35. Any material or equipment accidentally dropped could fall to I–35 striking vehicular traffic.
