The railroad crossing located at Lawn Avenue will be reconstructed beginning on April 12th and will be closed for approximately one week during the construction period.
BNSF will be rebuilding the crossing in concrete, similar to that construction done at the crossing on Wolf Road in 2012. East/West traffic along Hillgrove Avenue and Burlington Avenue should receive minimal impact.
The BNSF will be staging some construction equipment near the crossing during the construction period.
Updated 04/18/13: The BNSF has informed the Village that they have found additional sewer work running along their right of way that needs to be repaired prior to the crossing being reopened. Construction on the crossing has been extended until April 24th.
