The railroad company is improving four grade crossings — an intersection of railroad track and roadway that are on the same level — by replacing old or worn rubber and concrete with new concrete pads, according to a press release from the department on Thursday, May 30.
The work starts at the Central Avenue and Sixth Street crossing — closing Central Avenue from Fourth to Sixth streets June 10 to 17.
Drivers will use detour routes on Fourth Street, Sixth Street and Tracy Boulevard.
Railroad crews will close the crossing on MacArthur Drive, just south of 11th Street from June 17 to 24. MacArthur Drive will be closed from Wagtail Drive and Sixth Street.
Traffic will use detours on Schulte Road, Tracy Boulevard and 11th Street.
Work at an 11th Street railroad crossing will close that road from Alden Glen Drive to Lincoln Boulevard June 24 to July 1.
Drivers will use detours on Corral Hollow Road, Schulte Road and Tracy Boulevard.
Crews are expected to finish at the Tracy Boulevard railroad crossing, just south of 11th Street.
Tracy Boulevard will be closed from Sixth Street to Beechnut Avenue July 1 to 8.
Traffic will be detoured on Schulte Road, Tracy Boulevard, 11th Street and MacArthur Drive.
Residents and business owners with property inside the closed areas will still have access to their homes and businesses.
Detour signs will be posted to direct drivers around the construction.
The city of Tracy will add new paving on both sides of the completed railroad crossings to finish the construction, the release states.
