ENCINITAS, Calif. (KGTV) - City planners in Encinitas are seeking public input about the creation of 10 new pedestrian train crossings.

The city currently only has six legal crossings, though much of the train tracks are unobstructed and can be crossed illegally.

“Safety is one of our utmost concerns,” said Diane Langager, principal planner with the city.

She said she has been working on the crossing project for about two years. In addition to safety, she said the city wants to make the area more accessible by walking and biking.

“We’re doing everything we can to increase multi-modal transportation in the city,” she said.

They have identified different locations where crossings are possible but want input from residents to see what their priorities are.
