Update: US-12 crossing repair moved to second phase

The Canadian National Railroad will be replacing railroad ties from the Indiana/Michigan state line northward to the Village of Penn in Cass County beginning April 11, performing work on one track at a time. As part of the program the following road intersections will be rebuilt or improved:

• Redfield Street, east of Conrad Road

• US-12 in Edwardsburg

• Harris Street, west of M-62

• Pine Lake Street, west of M-62

• Jefferson Center Street, west of M-62

• Evan Street, west of M-62

• Hospital Street, west of M-62

• Decatur Road, at Fox Street

• Gards Prairie Road, north of Fox Street

The private farm crossings located along this section of track will also be rebuilt as part of the project.

The road crossings will need to be closed for approximately two weeks each for upgrades to occur and the CN Railroad will contact the emergency services, schools and Road Commission ahead of each individual closure. The road closures have been coordinated with the local fire departments and the Cass County Road Commission to provide public access and mobility during the project. During road closures detours will be posted by the railroad.

The following road crossings will be done with the first track line tie replacement:

• Redfield Street

• Pine Lake Street

• Evan Street

• Hospital Street

• Decatur Road

• Gards Prairie Road

The remaining road crossings will be done with the second tracks tie replacement:

• US-12

• Harris Street

• Jefferson Center Street

The project is estimated to be completed by the middle of June.
