Winston-Salem - Transportation contractors and Norfolk Southern Railroad contractors will permanently close the Mill Street railroad crossing in Landis starting tomorrow.
The closure will begin at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27.
It is part of the Salisbury to Kannapolis Railroad Improvements, which involve constructing approximately 11 miles of second track between Salisbury and Kannapolis as well as extending Kimball Road from Main Street to Chapel Street under a new railroad bridge.
Closing this railroad crossing eliminates the risk of train/vehicle collisions, improves safety for rail and vehicle passengers, and reduces automobile and train congestion.
Motorists will have several alternative roads to choose from including Main Street, Ryder Avenue and North Central Avenue.
