UPDATE - RAILROAD CLOSURES


UPDATE:  The city was informed at 10:45 a.m. by a Norfolk Southern representative that the "one track line only" situation caused by the Uncle Vic's fire a few days ago should be cleared up by 2:15 p.m. today and all track lines should be open.  

As updates come in we will keep everyone informed.

The city will be experiencing a significant increase in blocked railroad crossing on all Norfolk Southern tracks for an undetermined amount of days.  Norfolk has reported a main HUB fire at the Lorain, Ohio location and had to take down their main lines so trains are now running on only one track.   Unfortunately, this is all the information that we have at this time. 

The service department will be placing road closed signs out in an effort to inform vehicles that crossings are closed.

Please utilize all overpasses and underpasses during this time.
