4955.17 Grade crossings avoided if practicable.

If in the judgment of the court of common pleas or judge of such court, as provided in section 4955.16 of the Revised Code, it is reasonable and practicable to avoid a grade crossing, by its process the court shall prevent a crossing at grade. In determining the mode of such crossing, no grade shall be required to exceed the established maximum or ruling grade governing the operation by motive power of that division or part of the railroad on which the improvement is to be made without the consent of the company. Neither company's track shall be required to be placed below high-water mark.
