Railroad crossing detour
August 1, 2019
The BNSF Railroad is planning maintenance operations on the track crossing at Lerdo Highway near State Street and Santa Fe Way, requiring the temporary closure of the crossing Tuesday through Friday, Aug. 12-18.
According to the railroad, the work will make it smoother for vehicles going over the tracks, City Manager Scott Hurlbert said. The last time such maintenance occurred was six years ago.
