Railroad repairs scheduled for SR 57 in Washington

DAVIESS CO. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces an updated schedule for the complete closure at a railroad crossing on State Road 57 in Washington.

Beginning on or around Tuesday, March 16, crews with CSX will begin a project to replace the railroad crossing in Washington between Railroad and East South streets. Work is expected to last for about four days depending upon weather conditions.

This closure had previously been scheduled for March 1. 

During the closure, local traffic will have access up to the point of closure, but all thru traffic should use the official detour following U.S. 50, I-69, and S.R. 58.  

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
