Railroad crossing to be closed briefly in Hillsborough

From the Town of Hillsborough:

Rail crossings in Hillsborough are expected to be closed briefly Friday, Feb. 18, as Norfolk Southern Railway reconditions tracks, signals and bridges along the Raleigh-to-Charlotte corridor.

The crossing at West Hill Avenue and Dimmocks Mill Road is expected to be closed at least twice Friday for several hours at a time, with the actual time dependent on work performed in the field. Residents are advised to take alternative routes, such as Bellevue Avenue.

The mid-day service of North Carolina’s Amtrak Piedmont between Raleigh and Charlotte has been temporarily suspended Monday-Thursday through April 21 because of the reconditioning work. All trains are operating on adjusted schedules Friday-Sunday. Passengers may download adjusted schedules for the Piedmont and Carolinian trains at, or they may call 1-800-BYTRAIN for information.
