State Road 64 in Huntingburg to Close for Railroad Crossing Replacement

untitledFrom Indiana Department of Transportation

HUNTINGBURG – Norfolk Southern crews will close State Road 64 for seven days spread over two weeks to replace the railroad crossing just east of U.S. 231.

The S.R. 64 closures will occur in two phases, weather permitting. Crews anticipate closing the crossing at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 2 and reopening it on Wednesday, Sept. 3. Crews will then close the crossing the following work week beginning at 8 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 8. The new crossing is expected to be open to traffic by Friday, Sept. 12.

Local traffic will have access up to the railroad crossing, where all lanes will be closed and no through traffic will be allowed. The detour for heavy highway will follow U.S. 231 and S.R. 162 (see map).

Governor Pence has declared August 24 through 31 as Rail Safety Week in Indiana. INDOT urges drivers and pedestrians to remember “See tracks? Think train!” More information is at www.seetracksthinktrain.org.
