135th Street Closure at METRA Crossing (Southwest Highway)


135thTH Street at
METRA Railroad Crossing

July 26th through August 4, 2017

Metra will be conducting repairs at a railroad crossing located on 135th Street near Southwest Highway.  The Metra project requires the complete shutdown of vehicular traffic from July 26th to August 4th for vehicle crossing renewal. 

A roadway’s railway at-grade crossing is designed to fulfill its primary purpose of providing a smooth surface for the safe passage of rubber-tired vehicles across the railroad. The procedure involves complete removal of the old crossing panel and track-bed materials. The replacement consists of an asphalt underlayment layer, a pre-compacted ballast layer, a new track panel, and a new crossing surface.

Detour routes around the crossing will be in place during the repairs to alleviate any traffic related issues.
