Raleigh - N.C. Department of Transportation crews will assist A&R Railroad personnel in replacing a railroad crossing on Gillespie Street near N.C. 87 (Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway) in Fayetteville next week.
The replacement means that Gillespie Street will be closed from 8 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22 through 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26.
Transportation crews will remove the asphalt and rubber mats from the crossing. State officials will also assist with traffic control. After the railroad crossing is replaced, staff from the transportation department will install new asphalt and replace pavement markings.
