Rail Crossing Repair to Close Road

Rail Crossing Repair to Close Road

The Washington County Division of Public Works will be instituting a closure of East Oak Ridge Drive at the CSX Railroad Crossing from 8:00 AM on Friday April 16 through 8:00 PM on Sunday April 18, weather permitting, to allow the railroad to make repairs to the crossing.
East Oak Ridge Drive will be closed to all through traffic at that crossing during improvements. The posted detour will include signage in each direction on East Oak Ridge Drive, Maryland Route 65, Wilson Boulevard, and US Alternate 40-Frederick Street.
CSX will work through the weekend to minimize the duration of the closure and the effect on traffic. Weather may prolong the closure or delay the closure to the following weekend.
Contact Robert Slocum, Deputy Director of Public Works - Capital Projects Engineering or Krista Hart at 240-313-2400 for further information. Citizens may also contact CSX at 717-630-1282 regarding any questions specific to the railroad crossing improvements.
