The rail crossing at 95th Street and Vincennes Avenue on the Metra Rock Island Line will be closed from Wednesday, June 3 until Friday, June 12 for replacement and resurfacing.
The 95th Street vehicular crossing will be closed and out of service for the duration of the project. Detour signs will be posted advising motorists to take either Vincennes Avenue or Halsted Street from 95th Street to 103rd Street to cross the Metra tracks during construction.
Crossing projects generally include the removal and replacement of rails, ties, ballast, rubber panels and asphalt and are part of the regularly scheduled maintenance of Metra’s assets. Crossing renewals provide a smoother ride for motorists and ensure the continued safety of railroad operations.
