Stellar crossing puts railroad, city at odds; annexation takes first step to being reality
A final agreement between the Madison Railroad and the City of North Vernon on the Madison Avenue Stellar work is now in the hands of attorneys.

Now, the Council has directed their attorney to follow this direction to resolve a nagging Stellar issue which threatens to delay and, in the worst scenario, topple the project which would upgrade Madison Avenue, its intersection with East O&M Ave. and the one-block length of Fifth Street between the CSX track and the Stellar Plaza.
