Traffic reminder: Route 47 train crossing to be closed in Elburn

Published: Thursday, April 4, 2013 7:49 a.m. CST

Traffic on Route 47 in Elburn will come to a halt at the railroad tracks later this week, as maintenance work on the Union Pacific tracks will force drivers to seek alternate routes from Friday through April 10.

The crossing will be closed from 9 a.m. April 5 to 3 p.m. April 10 for what Union Pacific has termed “routine maintenance.”

The official detour will be to take Route 38 to Meredith Road and head south to Keslinger Road. Other possible detours are at Pouley Road and Harley Road.
