County commissioners schedule special railroad meeting
The LeFlore County Board of County Commissioners scheduled a special meeting later this month for action on improving railroad crossings.
The board will meet with representatives from the Oklahoma Department of Transportation at 2 p.m. Sept. 27 at the LeFlore County Courthouse in Poteau.
The board also will meet with railroad company representatives to conduct on-sight inspections in order to hold discussions and take possible action on improving railroad crossings in the county.
In early August, several members of the Goines family died in a vehicle-train collision at the railroad crossing on Dewey Avenue in Poteau.
The courthouse is located at 100 South Broadway.
