Background Discussion
  • In support of the 44th Avenue East from US 41 to 19th Street Court East Roadway Project, CSXT is requiring a Preemption Interconnection Agreement be executed with Manatee County.  Just east of 15th Street East along the future 44th Avenue East corridor, there exists a CSXT rail line.  Manatee County will be constructing a new signalized intersection at 15th Street East, and CSTX will be installing automatic flashing lights and gates at this rail line, and as such, circuitry between the two signals (the intersection signal and the rail line signal) will need to be connected.
  • The County Attorney’s Office has reviewed the agreement and offers that execution of the agreement could be done strictly as a business decision.
  • In addition, CSXT will not proceed without the payment of $7,058.
