Work is expected to continue this week on the U.S. 35 railroad crossing in Knox.
According to city officials, INDOT and railroad crews are working to improve the crossing that became rather rough during the winter months. Officials hope that the crossing will open in the middle of the week.
Until the crossing opens, motorists are encouraged to use the INDOT recommended detour. Southbound U.S. 35 traffic will be detoured west on State Road 8, south on State Road 39, east on State Road 10, and back to U.S. 35. Northbound traffic will be detoured west on State Road 10, north on State Road 39, east on State Road 8, and back to U.S. 35. Local traffic can utilize local streets to avoid the closure.
