Comments Off on Railroad Closures July 23rd-29th

Union Pacific Railroad will be preforming maintenance and repairs on the railroad crossings located on Kootenai Cutoff Road and East Gate Road the week of July 23rd-29th.

Only one crossing should be closed at any time.

The City is working with the railroad to try to minimize the impacts. However, each crossing will be closed for approximately 24 hours.

Please plan ahead and avoid these areas if at all possible.

Thank you for your patience.
