(SEYMOUR) - Work to improve 14 rail crossings along the Louisville & Indiana Railroad in Seymour will begin this summer.

That work is related to a $100 million upgrade of the 106½-mile rail line that runs between Louisville and Indianapolis. The U.S. Surface Transportation Board approved the project in April after a lengthy study of how it would affect communities along its path.

The L&I railroad and CSX, which also uses the line, want the upgrades so more trains that are both heavier and longer can use it. The number of trains traveling through Seymour is expected to go from three to five a day to as many as 15.
