Traffic adjustments now in place downtown with railroad crossing project underway

Commercial Street has been closed at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks in advance of an improvement project by the railroad.


Burlington Northern is repairing two of the tracks at the intersection. Work will continue until late Monday afternoon, based on the current timeline.

Once that project ends, Highway 50 just west of Commercial will see work as part of the annual Konnecting Link, or K-LINK, project. Two projects are scheduled, with work on Highway 50 from Commercial to Constitution first followed by work on Commercial from Kansas Avenue to the south city limits.

The K-LINK project should end shortly after Labor Day.
