Closed railroad crossings cause traffic delays

Published 4:25 pm Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Cars lined South Brundidge Street Tuesday afternoon from the Elm Street intersection all the way back to nearly CGI as motorists were detoured due to several closed railroad crossings.

Melissa Sanders, planning administrator, said these crossings will remain closed until at least Friday morning.

“Motorists are asked to use alternate routes to avoid this area for the duration of this project,” Sanders said. “There is currently no access across the railroad on these streets at this time. These closures are affecting traffic patterns which are causing traffic delays, especially along S. Brundidge Street towards downtown. Please use alternate routes coming to and from downtown Troy. Please avoid S. Brundidge Street and use alternate routes for school traffic.”
