SMART railroad crossing maintenance has closed the intersection of East Washington and Lakeville Street. A detour of traffic will be required from Tuesday, Oct. 2 through Thursday, Oct. 4. Motorists are strongly urged to use alternate routes and allow time for traffic delays.
The construction comes in addition to work on a water main running down East Washington Street, construction of the Target shopping center, and roadwork on the East Washington Street interchange with Highway 101.
It is part of SMART's effort to replace existing wooden crossings with smooth concrete panels where the new track will cross the roadway. Officials say the new crossings will make for a smoother ride.
