Crossing closed through Nov. 20

The Garfield Avenue railroad crossing will be completely closed from 9 a.m. today, Nov. 10, through 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20.

The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad is conducting repairs at the crossing, removing and replacing the asphalt, ties and rails. The finished product will provide a strengthened crossing for trains and smoother crossing for vehicles.

Signs will be posted in the area alerting motorists and pedestrians of the crossing closure.

All motorists and pedestrians will be detoured west to the Washington Street crossing. Please allow for additional time to account for these detours.

BNSF will work as quickly as possible to complete the project.
