Beginning Tuesday, weather permitting, CSX will be rebuilding railroad crossings in the Kenly, Micro and Selma areas in Johnston County. CSX engineering teams will be removing old rail ties, installing new ties and repaving road crossings with asphalt to provide smoother transitions over the crossings for drivers.
To ensure the community is aware of the upcoming work, CSX has notified state and local officials and local media outlets.
The following schedule is tentative and dependent on weather conditions. Work at these crossings is scheduled to begin on the following days. Typically it takes three to four days to rebuild and re-open each crossing. Updated information will be provided as necessary.
February 16 – Main Street and Wilson Street, Micro
February 17 – Bagley Road and Truckstop Road, Kenly
February 18 – Edgerton Street and First Street, Kenly
February 22 – Ricks Road, Preston Street, and Anderson Street, Selma
February 23 – Lizzie Mill Road and Brown Wall Road, Selma
No work will be performed at the Pittman Road, Fields Street, Bizzell Grove Church, and Second Street crossings.
“Maintaining railroad infrastructure is critical to avoiding service disruptions and preventing accidents and injuries,” according to Kristin Seay with CSX Corporate Communications. “We apologize for any temporary inconvenience these road closures may cause and appreciate the community’s patience as we complete this important work as safely and efficiently as possible.”
