The Fort Worth and Western Railroad (FWWR) at W 7th St crossing has been scheduled for improvement on Tuesday June 25 thru Thursday June 27. This project will improve the crossing area by replacing track, railroad ties and ballast across the street (roughly 150 feet), leveling the crossing, replacing new vehicle crossing panels and integrating (smoothing out) the roadway approaches.
W 7th St will need to be closed on June 25 and June 26 for the railroad construction part of the project. As City crews can make the tie in between railroad and roadway approaches, the crossing will open up to traffic on Thursday June 27. A traffic control plan is being finalized where on-street driver notices will be provided by electronic message signs at University Dr. and Summit Ave. Lancaster Ave will be the detour during this project.
