Back in March, Help Desk wrote about the troubling lack of fencing between the homes on the 6400 block of Glenmore Avenue and nearby Amtrak train tracks. Amtrak spokeswoman Danelle Hunter recently emailed Help Desk to update us on the status of the fencing:
Unfortunately, Amtrak will not be able to install fencing behind the 6400 block of Glenmore Avenue during Fiscal Year 2011. Recently Congress cut our 2011 Capital Budget by $81 million dollars and one of the effects is that we don't have the funds to do this fencing project. We will include money for this project in our 2012 Capital Budget Request.
