UPDATE: The Catoosa County Commission held a public meeting on Tuesday regarding the Graysville Railroad Crossing project.

Residents in the area has complained about the crossing for years.

Catoosa County officials have proposed an overpass at the railroad crossing on Graysville Road.

The project would cost an estimated $14,000,000.

Officials say in order to pay for the overpass they will most likely have to increase the current sales tax by 1%.

Residents at the meeting were opposed to the sales tax increase but not the idea of an overpass.

Residents say the railroad company should pay for the overpass instead.

Officials will vote on the proposal on March 19.
