Finding of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio on July 13th 2012 regarding railroad crossing: "5th and 7th rubber panels in the center of the track counted from the east as being broken internally and sinking under traffic, loss of asphalt material and sinking of asphalt along rails and asphalt humps in the south bound lanes. There are also some slight humps between the south siding and industrial track along the edge of the road. In the south siding the sixth panel in center of tracks counted from west is broken internally. Also, in the south siding the third panel in center of tracks from east is very loose and "rocking" in the surface."
