In addition, starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, September 27, until 9p.m. Tuesday, October 3, the two-way traffic on Anderson Street is schedule to be closed at the railroad crossing intersection with Linden Street.

The two existing railroad crossings will be removed and replaced with new concrete crossings and asphalt approaches. The following detours will remain in place:
