A CSX Railroad crew will begin work Monday on repair work and improvements to the West Main Street crossing in the city of Brighton. The work will necessitate a detour around the work area. According to city Department of Public Works Director Marcel Goch, the project is only expected to take four days, with favorable weather. Goch tells WHMI the work was supposed to have been done in August but there was a delay due to scheduling conflicts. Goch says doing the work next week is good for the city inasmuch as that way, it avoids all of the civic events that occurred during the summer. And the project comes none too soon. Goch says the crossing has been a bumpy one, resulting in many complaints on its condition by drivers over the past couple of years. CSX has promised to smooth out the bumps, applying new asphalt and putting in new timbers, all at its own expense. Because of the work, motorists will be required to take a detour. The detour route goes from Brighton Lake Road to 3rd St. to Main St. Goch cautions that the work may cause slowdowns of CSX trains at the various crossings in the city – and therefore longer waiting times for motorists during those four days. The work is scheduled to be completed by Friday, Sept. 15th. (TT)
