Learn What Your Community Can Do to Fight Proposed Monster Trains from Polluting the East End of Allegheny County

Norfolk Southern Railroad is accelerating plans to raise bridges in our communities in order to run longer double-stacked trains along a 20-mile route through 24 communities which would impact the health of over 112,000 residents. 

The proposed changes are projected to increase pollution in these communities the equivalent of 6,800 buses per day.

Norfolk Southern has tried to push this through without any hearing from the community.

Come to this educational meeting and hear from Matt Mehalik of the Breathe Project and Glenn Olcerst learn more about what residents of the east end of Pittsburgh can do to fight to protect their health and their communities.
