RR crossings will be closed in Salem

Motorists are reminded that all the railroad crossings in Salem will be closed Tuesday for most of the day due to a rail

replacement project. If drivers normally cross the tracks to get to work, school or home, they should plan on an alternate route, according to city Service/Safety Director Ken Kenst., Also, the South Lincoln Avenue and Pershing Street crossings will be closed nearly two weeks from Sept. 2 to 15 while the work is being done by Norfolk Southern.(Illustration courtesy of Ken Kenst)
