Posted November 26, 1999 6:00 a.m. EST

— A Raleigh railroad crossing that has been the scene of a number of fatalities will close.

Four people have died and others have been injured at the crossing, which is located at the intersection of Bashford and Hillsborough Streets.

A memorial stands as a sobering reminder near the tracks.

The state plans to open a new access road off NC Highway 54 to replace the crossing.

The project could take up to a year.
