We received a call from Norfolk Southern Railway informing us there has been a locomotive engine failure on the tracks at Kelly Lynn Drive in DeArmanville resulting in this crossing to be impassable. Their maintenance team has been dispatched and they have given us an estimate of 4 to 5 hours before they expect to have the train moving again.

⚠️⚠️THURSDAY MORNING UPDATE⚠️⚠️ ◼️ ALL PREVIOUSLY CLOSED RAILROAD CROSSINGS YESTERDAY ARE NOW OPEN TO REGULAR TRAFFIC. ◼️ THE COLEMAN ROAD CROSSING WILL BE CLOSED BEGINNING THIS MORNING (Thursday-1/27/22) FOR THE SAME REPAIRS. If you travel that route on your way to or from work or school, make adjustments by utilizing the crossing at Moore Street, Pace Street, or Hillyer Robinson Parkway to help make your day go smoother. Norfolk Southern confirmed last night they have completed phase 1 of their repair project at the Moore Street, Pace Street, and Hillyer Robinson Parkway railroad crossings, and will begin work at the Coleman Road crossing Thursday morning. We will update you here once we have confirmation the Coleman Road crossing has re-opened. In the coming weeks, Norfolk Southern will return for phase 2 of the repair project.
