Project Facts

During this phase of the project, crews will replace the south mainline rail, crossties and ballast on the 13-mile stretch of rail which runs parallel to Division Street. Concrete panels at each railroad crossing will be renewed as well.

    • Crews are expected to work from 7:00 p.m. to 4 a.m. each day.
    • Trains passing by work crews will blow their horns for safety reasons, even in the quiet zones.
    • Only two railroad crossings will be closed at a time. This will help minimize the impact on northbound and southbound traffic.

Project Maps

The following crossings will remain OPEN during the extent of the project:
