Updates on rail crossing closings

The Louisville & Indiana Railroad and CSX Railroad have revised a schedule for closing crossings as upgrades continue to the rail line between Seymour and Indianapolis.

Crews from R.J. Corman Railroad Group of Nicholasville, Kentucky, have been working to install high-speed rail line through Bartholomew county since the weekend of April 22.

The latest schedule, announced Thursday morning, still may change, said Andrea Janka, spokeswoman for Safety Services & Supply Co., Lima, Ohio, which is handling safety and traffic aspects of the project.
