Work on the TP&W rail line west of Logansport will cause some crossing closures starting Sunday 5/21. The work is moving east to west along the railroad, which parallels US 24. The current schedule is to close crossings listed below on the days listed:

  • Sunday 5/21: CR 600W
  • Monday 5/22: CR 800W
  • Tuesday 5/23: CR 825W
  • Wednesday 5/24: CR 925W, CR 1000W, CR 1050W

The crossing closures could extend into a second day from the dates listed, depending on the work progress. The contractor advises they will work to re-open crossings as soon as possible after the track work is complete.

A rail crossing in New Waverly will be closed for three to four days, beginning Wednesday, 5/24. Norfolk Southern has informed the highway department of the crossing closure at Cedar Street/ CR 975E in New Waverly. The crossing is expected to re-open by Friday or early Saturday. Traffic in the area can cross at CR 950E, just west of the closed crossing.

Also the NS rail crossing in Clymers remains closed through early next week. The road is closed for construction, but local traffic should be aware that the NS crossing on 400S will be completely closed until at least Tuesday 5/30. Local traffic can detour to the east using Vandalia and Main Streets.
