ROAD CLOSURES STARTING DATE: Additional crossings scheduled to close on Monday, June 14, 2021
CLOSURE DETAILS:
WEATHER PENDING –CSX Railroad will be performing track maintenance for their entire railroad line. Crossings will be shut one after the other which may lead to consecutive crossings closed at the same time. Some crossings may be shut down for multiple days but the goal is to open as soon as possible. Please allow extra time when travelling in the area.

NOTE: Stewart Road/Mall Road/LaSalle Road detour will direct all traffic south to use Elm Ave (N Custer Road) to travel east/west from US24 to M125.


All the above listed crossings will be closed throughout the week with more locations to come the following week. MCRC realizes that this project skips the crossing at Sigler Road. This crossing has been a location of concerns for the last couple of years. Contact to the railroad about work on this crossing shows that they have plans to fix the crossing later in the summer; they stated that they are putting a panel in that crossing as the work is more than general maintenance. The panel has not been built yet due to lack of materials.
