BNSF has advised that the equipment used to perform the work will be disruptive and noisy.

Trains passing through the construction area will also be sounding their horn in order to alert work crews.

The work may require temporary crossing closures, most of which are anticipated to occur overnight. Please adhere to closure information and detour routes as provided.
