In addition to the aforementioned roads, some additional private crossings may also be included in the scope of the project. Repairs will be completed in order, from south to north.
The duration of closures is dependent on track time, weather, and other factors, but on average each crossing will take 2-3 days to complete. Multiple crossings may be closed at once depending on their proximity to each other.
