Construction Activities: Project work to replace concrete panels at the railroad crossing will be performed by Union Pacific work crews.

Closure Period: The City of Elk Grove understands the challenges and inconvenience that commuters, residents, businesses, and pedestrians will experience during the closure period and ask for the public’s patience and cooperation as UP works to complete this project as quickly and efficiently as possible.
