Drivers reached out to our Driving Tampa Forward tip-line for help about cement that is breaking off along the railroad tracks along a popular Pinellas County road.

There is a railroad track in between Belcher and Starkey Roads on Bryan Dairy Road where chunks of cement are breaking off.

"It's a tough one, it's always busy," said Briana Rathmell.

Rathmell is a local delivery driver for a restaurant nearby, and uses Bryan Dairy Rd. four to five times a shift. She recently had to buy four new tires because of the roads she has to drive."Takes a chunk out of my money," she said.

ABC Action News reached out to CSX about the erosion on Bryan Dairy Rd. and they tell us they were not aware of reports of erosion, but said they sent the information to engineers for review.
