A rail crossing in rural Farmer City has been approved for upgrades in money designated by the Illinois Commerce Commission.
The ICC approved new signals and other improvements for 25 rail crossings in Illinois.
The agreement gives the crossing on Prairie Chapel Road new automatic warning devices and approach grade improvements for Illinois Central Railway Co.
The estimated cost is nearly $328,000.
Another four projects have been approved in central Illinois to the tune of $1.2-million in Peoria County.
