Charles City, IA – The bumpy railroad crossing at the Main and North Grand Ave intersection will see some improvements in July.

The Charles City Engineering Department says North Grand between Main Street and 13th Ave will close to traffic as Canadian Pacific Railroad performs crossing improvements to their main line beginning Tuesday July 8th. The railroad expects the crossing to re-open on Thursday July 10th.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid this area if possible and to utilize the marked detour to cross the tracks.

Questions can be directed to the Charles City Engineering Department at 257-6300.
