Work will begin soon to repair the railroad crossing on Heaton Street or U.S. 35, in Knox.
Mayor Rick Chambers told the city council this week that he received several emails in the past two weeks from the Indiana Department of Transportation and Norfolk Southern Railroad. They’re waiting until the asphalt plants open up in April in order to form a plan of attack. There is no timeline of when the work will be complete. They want to repair the crossing with a hot asphalt mix instead of applying cold patch. The hot mix will ensure a more permanent fix.
The railroad crossing between 19th Road and Illion Street in Tippecanoe will be closed Monday, May 5 through Friday, May 16. Norfolk Southern crews are repairing the crossing at that location in Marshall County.

A railroad crossing in Starke County will be closed for two weeks to allow Norfolk Southern to perform some minor crossing repairs. According to Railroad Coordinator Sandy Parisian, Norfolk Southern will be closing the crossing on County Road 1000 East, between county roads 225 North and 250 North, from Nov. 4 through Nov. 18.
There has been no official detour announced.
