Work to improve the Elm Street railroad crossing in Greenville is scheduled to wrap up Wednesday.
CSX Railroad is doing the work, which includes placement of concrete slabs between the rails at the crossing.
The project follows the recent completion of a new crossing on Fourth Street in Greenville. Greenville City Manager Dave Willey said he is very pleased with the Fourth Street crossing results.
CSX and the City of Greenville are sharing the costs for the Elm Street crossing project. The city will pay $39,000 for materials and for any asphalt work necessary.
The city has no money in the Fourth Street crossing Improvement, as the costs are being covered by CSX and the Illinois Commerce Commission through its Grade Crossing Protection Fund.
While work is conducted on Elm Street, the crossing is closed to traffic.
