South Westover Boulevard Closed for Norfolk Southern Railroad Maintenance
The Engineering Department has been informed that Norfolk Southern Railway will be replacing, repaving and performing general maintenance on their railroad and railroad crossings on South Westover Boulevard that will require the street to be closed in that area. The work is scheduled to begin Thursday, December 21st at 10:00 AM. This will affect traffic going North bound and South bound on South Westover Boulevard at the railroad crossing.
Norfolk Southern Railway will be putting down the surface asphalt and the process is expected to take two hours. All traffic control is being performed by Norfolk Southern’s contractor, Road Safe Traffic Systems. Motorists are advised to take detours around the closed crossings. The maintenance repairs will enhance motorists driving experience with smoother crossings and roadways adjacent to the tracks on Norfolk Southern’s Rail system in Albany.
For information on the railroad maintenance, please contact Bruce Maples, Director of Engineering at 229.883.6955.
