CSX Railroad crossings closed to traffic in portions of county until midnight
Some railroads crossings of the CSX line in Genesee County will be temporarily closed this evening in portions of the Town of Batavia, Darien, Corfu and East Pembroke.
Railroad crossings will be closed to all traffic on Wortendyke, Upton, Wilkinson and Colby roads, and Ellinwood Avenue, and possibly at other locations along that rail route.
The closure is expected to last until approximately midnight.
Doesn't Amtrak's "Mapleleaf" run that track also? There has been some conjecture that the Mapleleaf was the target of the terrorist plot in Canada.
Due to inspection (hopefully) in respect to the plot!!
About a week ago, I came down Colby road, and the lights on the gate were stuck on, and one arm was stuck down, even though there was no train in sight. So I have a feeling there was some sort of issue going on. There are also new railroad ties laid next to the tracks throughout that entire stretch, so they may be replacing the ties tonight.
