Full Release

Cary, NC – Weather permitting, CSX Transportation will close the railroad crossing at North Academy Street between E. Cedar Street and the Cary Train Depot from 10 p.m. February 7 through the evening of February 9. Drivers traveling through the area should follow posted detour signs, using West Chatham Street to North Harrison Avenue to Chapel Hill Road as a detour. The closure is necessary to allow CSX to complete railroad maintenance work overnight and asphalt repairs during the day. This work was originally scheduled to be completed in January but was postponed due to winter weather.

Questions and comments should only be directed to CSX at (803) 748-1280.
