Mingo Road repair work..
This is how the railroad crossing at Mingo Road and E 56th St North appeared yesterday. This is looking north. Notice the shallow angle and the very rough planking between the rails. Several cyclist have fallen here in good weather. It's far more treacherous when it's wet.
I wrote about this crossing in The Zig-Zag Man back in 2005.
The rest of these photos were taken this afternoon. Surprisingly, it's the Public Works Department from the city of Tulsa doing this work, not the railroad. I thought the RR was responsible for all these crossings.
Here's the good news - the crossing will be finished sometime later today! The road will be open again by 6 or 7PM according to the work crew.
