Week of 06/07/21: Concrete Curb Removal CSX will be removing the concrete curbing throughout town between E. High Street and Maple Street to have access to CSX track to pull the ties out. Project specs include removal of the curb and approximately 12” of concrete pavement from the face of the curb. CSX will need to pull the curb on the south (river) side of our track. Work performed block to block, with temporary closing of Williams Street in certain areas as CSX performs the work. When complete, the removed concrete will be protected with cones until the curb is ultimately replaced. CSX will also be performing the last of the saw cutting for the road crossings during this week.
Week of 06/21/21: Tie Team This week, the tie team itself will be working through town. In order to safely and efficiently replace track ties through town, CSX will need to remove and replace concrete curbing and will temporarily close road crossings. Elm Street and Vine Street will be open as the detour routes through the entire job. On Monday, 6/21/21, Williams Street will be closed along both sides of the track for crews to start pulling the other road crossings that will be worked. The road crossings being pulled will limit access to Williams Street on both sides of the tracks. Additionally, Williams Street will be closed in order to operate the on-track equipment safely and stage new/old ties for the work to be done. Working hours for this team is 0800 to 1800 currently. Paving and restoring road crossings is estimated to be complete by the end of the week, prioritizing Short St. and Walnut St. first. By end of day Friday 06/25 the majority of the road crossings are expected to be restored.
Week of 07/12/21 and 07/19/21: Concrete Curb Replacement Replacing concrete curbing to original dimensions, working block to block, temporarily closing Williams Street in certain areas as CSX performs
the work. CSX will be monitoring the area on a daily basis throughout the entire process to make sure the surrounding roads stay clear of rock and debris. Expect intermittent lane closures. Flagmen will be in place for safe traffic controls. Please use caution while traveling in this area. All construction schedules are weather contingent.
