RPD Traffic Advisory-

The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) has notified the Village that the Longcommon Road/Riverside Road railroad grade crossing will be completely closed from 8:00 a.m. on Friday, June 3, to 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 10, 2016, to be rebuilt and improved. The completion date and time is subject to change depending on how quickly the work can be completed or if any delays are encountered.
The Village requested a temporary pedestrian walkway at the crossing and BNSF intends to establish a temporary pedestrian crosswalk immediately to the west of the existing Longcommon Road railroad crossing for use during the project. The crossing gates and warning system will continue in operation during the crossing replacement project.

During the construction, vehicular traffic will need to use the following designated detour routes:

Coming from the north, the detour will be East Burlington Street to Cowley Road, Cowley Road to East Quincy Street, and East Quincy Street to Riverside Road;

Coming from the south, the detour will be East Quincy Street to Cowley Road, Cowley Road to East Burlington Street, and East Burlington Street to Longcommon Road.

The Riverside Police Department will have additional personnel in the area to monitor traffic flow and to assist if necessary. There will also be BNSF personnel on scene directing traffic and pedestrians to the detours.
