Defiance Street Crossing To Close Friday

The Defiance Street Norfolk Southern railroad crossing will close Friday, May 31, for repair.

Bob Seaman, village of Archbold engineer, said NS officials notified him Thursday, May 30 of the closure. The railroad has established West Barre Road, Clyde’s Way, and East Lutz Road as the detour while the work is in progress.

NS crews will add “hot-mix” asphalt to the area that was excavated when NS workers replaced a section of rail in February.

Plans call for NS to rebuild the crossing with rubberized panels within the next 12 weeks.–Posted 5.30.19 10:52 am
