Union Pacific Work Delays Keep Crossing Closed Until 5 pm Friday

Union Pacific (UP) Railroad advised the City today of delays in their track repair project in Old Town Elk Grove that will result in the extended closure of the railroad crossing at Elk Grove Boulevard through 5 pm Friday, May 20.

This closure will continue to impact all eastbound and westbound through traffic on Elk Grove Boulevard travelling between Elk Grove-Florin Road and Waterman Road including emergency and pedestrian traffic. A full 24-hour closure will remain in place between First Avenue and School Street. Access for all property owners and businesses will be maintained.

Train traffic will continue during construction. City Public Works remain in communication with UP. Should work be completed earlier than expected, crews will be in position to re-open the road as quickly as possible.
