After much delay, CSX is planning to replace the railroad ties along Frankfort Avenue and Westport Road beginning on Monday, October 31.

From Monday through Friday (October 31-November 4), a crew of sixty workers will be replacing ties from the Clifton neighborhood to Hubbards Lane and rebuilding crossings at many D9 streets. The crossings will be closed as the work progresses, including multiple crossings closed at the same time, which will force significant detours.  Each crossing will be closed for 24-48 hours once work begins there. CSX’s tentative schedule is as follows:

Monday, October 31

  • Galt Avenue
  • Birchwood Avenue

Tuesday, November 1

  • Crescent Avenue
  • Hillcrest Avenue
  • Pennsylvania Avenue
  • Reservoir Avenue
  • Blackburn Avenue

Wednesday, November 2

  • Masonic Home Drive (with Washington Square open during the closure)
  • Fenley Avenue (only after Blackburn reopens)
  • Chenoweth Lane

Thursday, November 3

  • Matthews Avenue
  • Clover Lane
  • Westport Road
  • Thierman Lane
