LANSING, Ill. (July 25, 2020) – Earlier this week John Groen and Rick McFarland of Lansing Public Works started their day at the corner of 186th and Ridgewood, near the Quiet Zone that spans the railroad crossing at 186th Street. They were there to replace a delineator that had been knocked off by a passing truck.
Groen says this is a common problem, and the usual culprit is not cars but trucks or other vehicles that are carrying wide loads. Each delineator replacement costs about $80.
