Alton, IL

Rail Crossings Closures Continue

Story by WBGZ Radio

High speed rail crossing upgrade work in Godfrey is nearly complete. The crossings at Humbert, Tolle, and Alby, have been closed at various times, and Pearl Street will be the last of the crossings to be worked on as IDOT makes upgrades as the higher-speed service nears reality.

The Pearl Street work starts Monday and runs through October 5. Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick tells The Big Z the Union Pacific Railroad has indicated after Pearl Street is done, they plan to go back to the Tolle Lane crossing and fix that job.

He says other than the Tolle Lane situation, all of the other work appears to have gone smoothly.
