Crews will be working through the week to remove the existing railroad crossing & replace it with a new, concrete surface crossing. All work is weather dependent. During the work, a detour will be in place. The detour will direct drivers to use the following Lewistown Borough streets: Market Street, Dorcas Street, Charles Street, & Juniata Street. The detour will be signed & drivers should follow detour directions, obey posted speed limits & always buckle up.
