Update on Road Closings in Elmore County as CSX Works On Rail Crossings

As of 2:45 P.M. March 10, 2017 

Elmore County – CSX Railroad began working on rail crossings in Elmore County on this past Monday, March 6. The Elmore County Elmore County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has been in constant contact with the rail representatives throughout the week in order to keep emergency service providers (law enforcement, fire, and EMS) and Board of Education informed of the closures at the rail crossings. The Elmore County EMA has been provided an updated work schedule for the remaining work to be completed by CSX next week beginning Monday, March 13, 2017.

Below is a schedule showing the crossing work that has been completed or the anticipated day that the work will likely be conducted on. Each road listed below will be closed at the rail crossing anywhere from two to three days at a time while the work is being completed.

For roads/crossings that are not “one way in/one way out,” CSX will set up detours allowing temporary alternative access. Those individuals with “one way in/one way out” access will be notified in advance by CSX and given an opportunity to relocate their vehicles to the other side of the crossings in order to not be inhibited from departing these areas once work begins on the crossings. CSX will also expedite the process for reopening the one way in/one way out routes.
