[ARCHIVED] UPDATE: Union Pacific To Close Third Street Railroad Crossing April 12-14 To Finish Track Repairs

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW START TIME FOR THE CLOSURE. The crossing will remain open Friday, April 11.


Union Pacific will be closing the Third Street railroad crossing in downtown Geneva for three days starting Saturday, April 12 to complete repairs started last month on defective rail lines.

The crossing is scheduled to be shut down from 6 a.m. April 12 to 3 p.m. Monday, April 14. The scope of work also will include filling in low spots with gravel and adding asphalt at the drop-offs next to the rail crossing.

Detour signs will be posted directing motorists heading north to continue on First Street (Route 31), west on Fulton Street and resume north on Third Street. The detour will be reversed for motorists heading south on Third Street.

With the barricades being set along the tracks, downtown patrons will be able to frequent restaurants, shops and the downtown parking deck. Commuters who utilize the parking lots on the south side of the tracks also will have pedestrian access to the Metra Station during construction.

Union Pacific closed the crossing in early March to start repairs on the defective rail lines but needed additional time to complete the project.

Any additional updates impacting the project timeline will be posted on the City’s website.
