College student to monitor Bunker Road railroad crossing
Bv DEBBIE DeLOACH Staff writer
Comal ISI) bus service across the Bunker Road railroad crossing could begin as early as Wednesday, thanks to a trial patrol program approved by trustees Monday night
Supt Bill Brown said a female college student who lives in the Deer Park subdivision is willing to accept the job of monitoring the crossing before and after school Her name is Bonita Brumfield, and her job is to be at the tracks twice a day to tell the bus driver if it s safe to cross the tracks She will be paid for two hours of work per day at ta per hour.
I .orated off PM 482 near Comal Elementary School, the Bunker Road railroad crossing has turned into a barrier for school buses and the Deer Park subdivision on Bunker Road There are five tracks at the crossing, four of which are called switch”
tracks where railroad cars are often parked
lack (rf visibility and state laws preventing school buses from slopping on railroad tracks have kept CIS!) buses from serving about IO children on the other side Monday night, trustees decided to use Brumfield as the bus driver's eyes” on a trial basis for IM) days and see how the concept works
Harvey Pape. CXSD transportation manager, said bus routes have been altered slightly. so that only those student" who live in the subdivision will be on the bus when it crosses the tracks both times during the day.
Rape also said he thought the patrol program could be implemented by Wednesday
Trustee BUI Hays wanted to know lf there were other similar situations within the district where buses don't go directly into the subdivision to let kids off Rape said there were ap
proximately nine or ten instances where the buses can’t get into a subdivision, mostly due to steep grades or hills I*eroy Goodwin, board president, said the district would continue to seek changes in the crossing s index number, and possibly using that number to secure fundng for more sophisticated signals at the Bunker Road crossing Index numbers are derived from the average daily traffic number of train moves per day. speed of trains, existing protection equipment and the number of accidents for the past five years If the Bunker Road crossing were re-evaluated, it could possibly qualify for funding by the state Department of Highways and Transportation Currently passive grade crossing traffic control crossbuck signs are displayed at the Bunker Road crossing
