This Day in History: 1941-02-13
The Ramsey Borough Council, meeting on Thursday, since the 12th was Lincoln’s birthday, heard a report from Mayor Goertzen about the meetings he had been having with Erie Superintendent Adams on the upper crossing of the Erie. There had been considerable attention given to that unguarded crossing since a major accident had taken place there a few months earlier. The Erie was reported to have taken a survey of traffic there and at the Main Street crossing. They had recorded over 6,000 vehicles crossing at Main Street on a single day and about 500 at the upper crossing. It was understood that the Railroad was going to install gates at the upper crossing. These would be operated from the tower on Main Street.
