[ARCHIVED] Union Pacific Rail Repairs To Close Downtown Crossing Oct. 3-4

The Third Street railroad crossing in downtown Geneva will be closed to traffic Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 3 and 4 as Union Pacific makes track repairs.

The crossing will be shut down to cars from 7 a.m. Oct. 3 to 5 p.m. Oct. 4, weather permitting. Commuter trains will continue to operate on their normal schedule, and pedestrians will be allowed to cross the tracks during the weekend.

Detour signs will be posted directing motorists heading south on Third Street to turn east on Fulton Street and then south on Route 31. The detour will be reversed for drivers heading northbound.

With the barricades being set along the tracks, downtown patrons will be able to frequent restaurants, shops and the downtown parking deck.
