Almost 6 years after a man's death in a train accident, the intersection where it happened is getting crossing gates and lights.

Jeffrey Campbell was hit by a train and killed in Knox County in September of 2006.

His family fought for crossing gates.

And within the last couple of weeks, they found out the state budget includes $175,000 for those gates.

Campbell's cousin Kara Ball says, "I immediately burst into tears. I was just so excited and all i could think about was, oh my gosh, Aunt Becky and Uncle Kenneth -which is his parents- are going to be so ecstatic. I mean, I get chills just thinking about it."

On July 1st, the family will find out when the gates will go up.
