Railroad Crossing on 1000 East to Close for Two Weeks


A railroad crossing in Starke County will be closed for two weeks to allow Norfolk Southern to perform some minor crossing repairs. According to Railroad Coordinator Sandy Parisian, Norfolk Southern will be closing the crossing on County Road 1000 East, between county roads 225 North and 250 North, from Nov. 4 through Nov. 18.

There has been no official detour announced.

Parisian explained that the railroad company has to replace the wooden ties under the crossing, which should take about two weeks. The process involves removing asphalt, placing the new ties, installing a cold patch and then rolling out a new layer of asphalt on top.
