NORMAL — Four Normal railroad crossings will close during evening hours Tuesday and Wednesday for repairs.

The following crossings will be closed from 6 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday and from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 1 a.m. Thursday:

• Airport Road between Old Route 66 and County Road 1800N

• Beech Street between East Locust Street and Old Fort Jesse Road

• Broadway Avenue between West Phoenix Avenue and West Beaufort Street

• Fell Avenue between Irving and West Beaufort streets

Union Pacific Railroad will perform the repairs, the town posted to Facebook.

"Please drive safely around the work zone as there will be men and equipment on the roadway," according to the post.

The work comes a few days after crossing closures for high-speed rail in Normal ended with the College Avenue crossing reopening Friday for the first time since October.

In Bloomington, the West Washington Street crossing between Western and Gas avenues remains closed, but is scheduled to reopen May 19, according to an Illinois Department of Transportation website.
