Of note, the Walker Ave Bridge project begins on Monday - the bridge will be removed, the road will be lowered, and the rail will be raised to form an at-grade crossing. Estimated completion is early July. C&M will be landlocked in the not-too-distant future. Other arrangements have been made to serve Standard via an alternative site for the duration of the track closure.

Tree removal begins today. Bridge removal won't be until the first week in April. There's a gas main on the bridge that cannot be taken out of service until late March.

Ahh - makes sense. Who is doing the defoliating?

Should be some great shots there when everything is opened up

AFAIK there will be gates and LEDs. RDD likely knows more of the specifics but I'll leave that for him.
