About this Article

More than 450 Barrington-area residents Thursday came to voice their often strong preferences on the choice between a Route 14 overpass or underpass to keep increasing freight traffic on the Canadian National railroad tracks from snarling motor traffic. But as might have been expected from a crowd so large, the options favored outnumbered the two presented. "If (the overpass) goes up, I'm gone. I'll walk away from my house if I have to," one resident said.
