Sen. Carlucci calls on MTA, DOT to release report on rail crossingsPosted: Updated:
Sunday marks four years since a train collided into a car in Valhalla, killing six people, and lawmakers say they're still seeking answers on dangerous crossings.
State Sen. David Carlucci is asking the MTA and the Department of Transportation why it has stalled giving officials a report that could help avoid another tragedy.
In 2016, the MTA and DOT were required by law to submit a report on the conditions of hundreds of railway crossings to the Senate, but two years later, information has not been released.
"I'm perplexed," says Carlucci. "The MTA, they almost seemed surprised. The DOT has had a lack of action and I'm just asking them to follow the law."
Carlucci tells News 12 doing nothing could mean another life lost.
The Senate is in the midst of budget negotiations. Carlucci says he and his colleagues won't fund pieces of the budget until they are satisfied in knowing what is being done to fix these problems.
