Edinburgh rail crossing closings announced

EDINBURGH — Railroad crossings through Edinburgh will close periodically beginning Wednesday and should reopen to traffic on Thursday morning.

Rails at the crossing are being replaced with high-speed rail by Louisville & Indiana and CSX railroads. Each crossing will be closed twice, once for each side of the rail. The crossings will be closed for a few hours at a time and will not be closed overnight.

Crossings on the following roads will be affected:

  • County Road 900N
  • County Line Road
  • Perry Street
  • Thompson Street
  • Main Cross Street
  • Naomi Street
  • County Road 700E
  • County Road 650S
  • County Road 775E

A detour has been set up and motorists are asked to use Center Cross Street (State Road 252) since it will remain open throughout the rail-replacement process.

The schedule is subject to change without notice due to weather or other factors, Edinburgh officials said.
