Applicant: CSX Transportation, Inc., Mr. Joseph S. Ivanyo, Chief Engineer, Communications and Signals, 500 Water Street, SC J-350, Jacksonville, Florida 32202.
CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSX) seeks approval of the proposed modification of the traffic control system at Mileposts OWA 63.8 and OWA 63.0 on the W&A Subdivision, Atlanta Division, at Adairsville, Georgia. The modification consists of the removal of Control Points North Halls and South Halls, including the removal of the power-operated switch, switch frog, and turnout, and signals 26LA, 26LC, and 26R, at South Halls (Milepost OWA 63.0); and the conversion of the power-operated switch to a hand-throw switch, and removal of signals 28LA, 28RA, and 28RC, at North Halls (Milepost OWA 63.8). Intermediate Signals 631 and 630 will be installed at Milepost 63.0.
The reason given for the proposed change is that the existing siding is no longer needed for current operations.
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.
