BOGOTA - Local leaders want to reopen Fort Lee Road in Bogota, which is interrupted by train tracks and hasn't been accessible to cars since 1938.
Officials are hoping that by allowing cars to cross the tracks, it will help revitalize the neighborhood.
Local business owners are torn about the idea. "For me, I'm the manager of the shop, it's not a good idea," says Daniel Para, with a local auto shop. "Because now we'll have to move cars or we're going to lose parking. For my boss, it's a good idea for him because it will bring more business."

Town officials say a new vehicle crossing would not only help traffic flow, it would also help emergency responders to navigate more easily around town.
A new vehicle crossing would need approval from state and railroad authorities.
