A heads up for all those traveling on Route 16 in Shelbyville next week: IDOT will be closing the railroad crossing on Route 16 on the east side of town next Tuesday. The closure is scheduled to last until May 19th.
IDOT Program Development Engineer Greg Jamerson says the work is needed because of the condition of the railroad tracks.
Jamerson says because of the location of the crossing, there will probably not be any short detours available for larger traffic.
Jamerson says that the general public and freight traffic will be asked to take 128 as a detour.
