Temple city officials on Monday said current downtown re-development plans, include Norfolk Southern Railroad’s intent to construct an extended parallel train track that should result in “far fewer occasions in which trains are blocking downtown roadways.”

City Administrator Bill Osborne said that project should will be well underway by this time next year.

The city also plans to seek permission and assistance from Norfolk Southern to upgrade sidewalks in front of buildings along the tracks in downtown.
