Bridge Street railroad crossing in Agawam working properly again

Hampden County

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The railroad crossing on Bridge Street between Agawam and West Springfield was not working Saturday. 

In a video sent to 22News by a viewer, the railroad crossing gates are down. Even though a train wasn’t coming, cars decided to move around the gate making for a lot of close calls.

22News viewer Bianca Moriarty said, “this was the worst she’s ever seen.”

The video was taken around 3:15 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

The gates were working again when our 22News crew arrived around 6 p.m. Saturday evening.

No word on why the railroad crossing was not working properly.
