BNSF has advised the Village that the Longcommon crossing will remain closed until tomorrow evening, September 23. BNSF is hopeful that they will be able to open the crossing tomorrow evening, weather permitting.
LONGCOMMON CROSSING - FULL CLOSURE TO ALL TRAFFIC - VEHICLES, PEDESTRIANS, CYCLISTS
A full closure is planned starting at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 15 through 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 22. Detours will be posted. All traffic will be rerouted to Cowley Road while work takes place at the Longcommon Road crossing. Please plan accordingly, especially with schoolchildren who utilize this crossing to get to and from school. Commuters will also need to make accommodations during this construction period to access their train on the proper side of the tracks. BNSF recommends utilizing the Berwyn, Harlem Avenue or Brookfield stops during the project.
