The section of Blossom Ferry Road that the railroad intersects is not officially a public street, said Drew Thomas, crossing safety engineer manager for the N.C. Department of Transportation. A small section of the road, between Shearin Hills Drive and Holly Shelter Road, is part of the state street system, but the rest is private.
Federal regulations on money for crossing safety prevents the department from placing lights and gates on private roads.
