As part of preliminary work to upgrade the railroad bridge at the Flat Rock River crossing in Noblitt Park, crews will begin tree removal in the area beginning the week of November 27. Work is expected to continue over several weeks as numerous trees are removed to allow for room for cranes and equipment to move into the area for bridge construction.
Residents near the area may see temporary railroad stakes in the area of the bridge about 45 feet from the tracks. If in the area, please obey all marked barricades and warning signs so that crews may safely do their work.
Construction on the bridge is expected to begin in March 2018 with an estimated budget of $12 million. For details on the tree removal and bridge project, visit the links below.
