For your information and use –
Norfolk Southern is replacing 12 railroad crossings at major intersections, one at a time, throughout the city. By upgrading the railroad crossings, trains will be able to move through intersections more efficiently with fewer breakdowns and delays.
- During the work the roadway will be fully closed in both directions to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. It is estimated that each closure will take about 3-6 days depending on weather and other construction issues.
- On the city’s website on the bottom scroll, there is an icon entitled “Railroad Crossings”. Click to find a map, the list of railroad crossings, scheduled detour routes and contact persons. The link is attached: Norfolk Southern Railroad Crossings Rehabilitation Project Information.
