VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) - Some eastern North Dakota residents who live near a railroad crossing are complaining about the length of time that a county road has been blocked.

KOVC-AM reports that the Barnes County Sheriff’s Office has received complaints from residents about how long County Road 27 near the grain elevator in Peak has been obstructed.

Sheriff Randy McClaflin says his office has recently issued citations to BNSF Railway and Canadian Pacific in relation to the situation. He says the citations have gone nowhere and he is now considering presenting the matter to the state’s Public Service Commission to get their opinion.

The rail crossing in along County Road 27, about two miles north of the Peak exit on Interstate 94 near a grain elevator.
