Currently, a freight train crosses E. Wash about once a week.

Imagine 6-13 per hour-- shorter commuter trains blocking all lanes of  E. Wash

some several times
- during rush hour(s).

How long will it take to stop the traffic, wait for the train to pass, untangle the traffic before the next train crosses?
