INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A CSX railroad line in bad shape will soon be getting attention, after FOX59 raised concerns from viewers.

One track in particular, the one at Kentucky Ave. and Raymond St. on the city’s west side is usually avoided by truck drivers who know just how bad the track is.

Jeffrey Suhre drives a dump truck down the road multiple times each day. He said he noticed the track deteriorating a few years ago and has called CSX to get it repaired. CSX said they have no record of complaints for this location of the track.

This particular part of the track is out of service. CSX representatives said they would have an engineer come out to the track to inspect it and see if any repairs can be made. Officials said this track is scheduled to be removed in the future.

CSX is encouraging people to call them to report damage to tracks. They say it’s important for people to call 1-877-TELL-CSX (1-877-835-5279).

In a statement, CSX said:

“First and foremost, safety is always CSX’s priority. CSX strives to be a good neighbor in the communities where our trains operate. We encourage community members to contact us immediately for all railroad emergencies, including blocked crossings or track, crossing accidents, crossing signal problems,  vandalism, trespassing or unsafe employee driving.”
