CONRAIL AND BOROUGH OF LEETSDALE WORK TOGETHER TO IMPROVE ACCESS TO LEETSDALE INDUSTRIAL PARK

 PHILADELPHIA, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Consolidated Rail Corporation (NYSE: CRR) (Conrail) and the Borough of Leetsdale, Pa., will work together to improve access to Leetsdale Industrial Park through the construction of a bridge that will eliminate the Ferry Street grade crossing.
 Conrail Area Engineer for Design and Construction, Matt Weidner, today presented the first of three checks which will total $250,000 to Borough Council President Roger Nanni to pay the design and engineering costs of the new bridge. When the bridge is built, the Ferry Street crossing, currently the only access for commercial traffic into the park, will be closed.
 Construction of the new bridge will also improve some of Conrail's operations through the area. An older bridge that does not have enough clearance for double stack train service and has weight limitations for trucks will be demolished as part of the project.
 This will enable Conrail to provide more efficient intermodal services to its Pennsylvania customers.
 Conrail operates a rail freight network in 14 northeastern and midwestern states, the District of Columbia, and the Province of Quebec.
