[ARCHIVED] Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad East Avenue Crossing - Emergency Maintenance Closure
The Indiana Harbor Belt (IHB) Railroad will be closing East Avenue at 47th Street today starting at 9 a.m. to perform emergency track maintenance to repair a broken rail. The IHB anticipates that the repair will be completed by 2 p.m. at which time the roadway will be reopened to traffic.
Motorists should avoid this intersection by using alternative routes including 55th Street, La Grange Road, 1st Avenue and Ogden Avenue. The Village requests that businesses notify any delivery companies of this emergency closure and to use alternate routes.
The Village will work with the IHB as much as possible to minimize the inconveniences associated with this emergency repair. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Public Works at (708) 579-2328.
