Why is it so bumpy on Venice Road over the railroad tracks?
Christine Myers, a state transportation department spokeswoman, provided the following answer:
"At this point, we cannot speculate as to what may have happened to this area that the residents are referring to. While the west-end overpass was under construction, the railroad (Norfolk Southern) added an additional spur that may have generated additional train traffic in the area.
"In the area of rail crossings, the maintenance of the roadway within the header ties of the railway are outside of the jurisdiction of (the Ohio Department of Transportation Department) and the city of Sandusky. In addition, when the U.S. 6 project is complete, motorists will be passing over the tracks on the new roadway alignment."
