TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A Terre Haute man says CSX trains are still blocking the crossing near his home for hours at a time.

Last week, we introduced you to Art Blankenship.

He told us CSX trains block the crossing at the end of 58th Street, and he can't get out of his driveway.

A CSX spokesperson says the complaint was elevated.

Blankenship tells us the trains are still stopping at the crossing.

He says CSX told him they would do some studies of the area, but there was no timeline for when the issue would be resolved.
