Railroad Crossing Closure Planned in Shelby County

May 19, 2020 - A railroad crossing in Shelby County will be closed Wednesday, May 20th, as crews work to repair and upgrade the road base.

The Union Pacific Railroad crossing on FM 2787 will be closed through the day as concrete and limestone are placed in both lanes on the south side of the tracks. Traffic control will be set near the crossing. Motorists should plan to detour around the work zone on FM 139 or choose alternate routes.

Once work is completed, motorists can expect continued maintenance work in the area for several weeks. A pilot car will in place to guide traffic through the work zones. Motorists should remain alert for signage, workers and moving equipment near this work zone. Obey all traffic control in place and prepare for delays.
