Oleander Dr. railroad crossing reopen following closure for repair work
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The railroad crossing on Oleander Dr., near Wooster and Dawson streets, has reopened, according to a WECT crew at the crossing.
The crossing first closed on Saturday, Oct. 28 for repair work conducted by CSX.
“As part of a network-wide infrastructure maintenance program, CSX will close the Oleander Drive grade crossing to conduct repairs starting Saturday, October 28,” a CSX spokesperson previously said. “Maintenance like this is critical to the safety of both train operations and roadway traffic and has been scheduled in close coordination with local roadway authorities in order to temporarily close roads as crews replace the crossing panels to provide a safe, smooth surface for drivers.
“We appreciate the public’s patience while we complete this work, which is essential to ensuring the safety of motorists using the crossing and a safe, reliable freight rail network.”
The crossing was originally scheduled to reopen at 4 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31.
