NAPERVILLE, Ill. — The Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway will be performing maintenance work on the River Road railroad crossing to pull and replace several pads and track from the crossing and install new asphalt.

Work is scheduled to begin at 9AM on Mon., Nov. 26 and is expected to be complete by 10PM on Thurs., Nov. 29, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances.

This work will require a complete closure of the crossing to all traffic.

The BNSF will re-route traffic on River Road via a posted detour on Jefferson and Ogden avenues. Access to local destinations near or adjacent to the crossing will be maintained while the railroad work is in progress.

Motorists should use caution in the area until the project is complete.
