Railroad crossing repairs to take longer than expected

Team Radio Marketing Group - September 8, 2017 8:56 am

Burlington Northern Santa Fe has advised the City of Ponca City that the emergency railroad crossing repairs at Prospect Avenue will take longer than originally predicted.

Upon investigation, BNSF crews found additional repair needs at the crossing which require removal of the existing ties through the entire crossing.  The extra work will add at least six days to the job and the crossing is not expected to be open to vehicular traffic until Wednesday, Sept. 13, at the earliest.

Questions may be directed to Mike Lane, Traffic Engineering Manager, at (580) 767-0327.
