Several North Escambia Railroad Crossings To Close For Maintenance

October 8, 2019

Several North Escambia railroad crossings will be temporarily closed at some point during the next two weeks as CSX crews install new rail ties as part of a network-wide crossing maintenance program.

Traffic will experience temporary closures at the following railroad crossings during the operations period:

  • McCurdy Street (Century)
  • East Cottage Street (Century)
  • East Pond Street (Century)
  • Daffin Road (Molino)
  • Fairground Road (Molinio)
  • Old Chemstrand Road (Gonzalez)
  • East Oakfield Road (Pensacola)

The roadways will be temporarily closed at different times throughout the period depending on the maintenance schedule.

All activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather.

    And no one said anything about running late. I leave with more than enough time to account for hold ups along the way. That has nothing to do with not wanting to be held up forever. I guess you enjoy sitting for hours on 29 for the I.P train too huh.
    Those tracks are nowhere near causing a derailment. That’s a bit of a stretch to say the least. Thanks for your expert input on that though.

    I’ve paid my own bills for quite some time. Unless you’re jumping the tracks, you’re not going to have any added maintenance to your car. If going over some bumps does that, you prob need to get yourself a newer car.

    BBB…you obviously aren’t the one having to pay for your car/repairs/tires, etc.

    You WILL care about the condition of the tracks IF it causes a train derailment, especially one carrying all the poisonous chemicals! Evidently you’ve not ever been humbled with the tragedies that a derailment can cause!

    Try getting up earlier, then you won’t run late by having to detour one block around a little construction for a couple of days! Geezzz…just sayin’

    I’m glad Williams Ditch isn’t on the list. Not trying to deal with being blocked by slow ass construction workers. Being blocked by the train is bad enough. I certainly don’t care about the condition of their tracks when they obviously don’t.

    Native…you are so right! I live in that area and I even reported the mess up of the crossing on Williams Ditch Rd onto 95A….I reported it over 6 months ago because of the rotting away of the wooden ties…….they really don’t seem to care.

    Was sure hoping to see the RR crossing for Williams Ditch Road on this list. It has gotten in terrible shape! Too much traffic…too many new homes going up…the whole road needs improvements!
