Railroad Traffic

As many of you are aware the Little Calumet River Basin Development Commission and the CF&E Railroad are replacing the bridge over Deep River near Cleveland Avenue. This construction requires the use of a temporary track on the bridge. The use of this track requires that for safeties sake train traffic to be under strict speed control. Trains are limited to a speed of 5 miles per hour. This slow speed is causing long back-ups at the grade crossings at North Lake Park, Cleveland Avenue and Illinois Street (State Route 51).

These speed restrictions are temporary. As construction progresses and the permanent rail line is completed the speed restricts will be eliminated. Depending on the weather, the contractor hopes to have this accomplished within the next 6 weeks.
