Barrio Beat

— Spending too much time waiting for freight trains to cross César E. Chávez Parkway (formerly Crosby Street) at the Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal in Barrio Logan? So apparently are staffers for the Port of San Diego, who are taking notes and brought up the issue during a recent meeting in Fort Worth with their counterparts at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway. "In the last two months, there were ninety-nine incidents of blockage beyond ten minutes, of which there were seventeen times that the blockages lasted more than thirty minutes," all of which represent a violation of the state Public Utilities Commission's maximum ten-minute blockage rule, according to a June 28 report to port commissioners. The railroad promised to investigate.
