The estimated cost is high but the Lafayette Street pedestrian crossing at the riverfront has a high volume of traffic, and with more than 50 Union Pacific trains a day, the proposed improvement project is warranted. The city of Washington has approved an agreement with the railroad to construct the improved crossing.

The proposed improvements include placement of asphalt between the railroad tracks, extending the railroad track panels, installing base rock and concrete sidewalks. Two 12-foot-wide sidewalks on both sides of the street at the crossing have been proposed. There will be modifications to the signal and arms at the crossing.
