Canadian National will perform a complete removal of the crossing surface, rails, ties and track ballast down to subgrade. The crossing will then be rebuilt with new material. During the maintenance project, there will be no access to thru traffic.

Motorists are advised to follow the marked detour signage and to drive courteously when driving around or through work zones.
