Back-to-Back Closures of S.R. 28 and U.S. 68 in Clinton County this Week

Railroad crossing repairs at two lines in Midland require back-to-back closures of State Route 28 and U.S. Route 68 in Clinton County this week.

S.R. 28 was closed Monday, April 24th at the CSX Railroad crossing, between Frazier and Hales Branch Road, just east of U.S. 68 at Midland, while contractors for the railroad repair the crossing. The closure will be in effect through Thursday, April 27, and while the route is closed, traffic will be detoured via S.R. 134, S.R. 350 and U.S. 68.

Following completion of these repairs, the contractor will move to the CSX crossing on U.S. 68, just south of the intersection with S.R. 28, and a four-day closure will go into effect at this location. All work is anticipated to be completed by May 1, and while U.S. 68 is closed, traffic will be detoured by way of S.R. 28 and S.R. 123.

Coming up next week, single-lane closures will be in effect on Interstate 71 in Clinton County for earthwork. 

Beginning at approximately 8 p.m. Sunday, April 30, I-71 North and South will be reduced to one lane between the U.S. 68 and S.R. 72 interchanges until 9 a.m. Monday, May 1. These lane closures will be in place each night through Friday, May 5.

Motorists are reminded to exercise additional caution through the area.
