Railroad crossing work in Kane will now begin Saturday Sept. 20 through 22

Work now set for Sept. 20 through 22 with detour in place

Kane – PennDOT is alerting drivers that work to repair a railroad crossing on Route 66 in Kane Borough has been changed and will now take place Sept. 20 through 22. Work had previously been scheduled for Sept. 22 through Sept. 26. The new work schedule will impact weekend travel. A section of Route 66 (Fraley Street) in Kane will be closed on Sept. 20 as a contractor for the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad oversees replacement of a railroad crossing near Birch Street. All work is weather dependent.

A detour will be in effect for three days while the project is completed. The three-day closure is Saturday through Monday, with a planned re-opening set for Tuesday morning, Sept. 23. For the detour, drivers will use Routes 66, 948, 666, and 6. Motorists familiar with the area may use alternate routes. Drivers are reminded that Route 3004 (Hemlock Street) has a 10-ton weight posting.

Atlas Railroad has been contracted by B & P Railroad to remove the existing crossing, and fully construct a new one. This work will include a new sub-base, ties, rail, rail seal, and paving. Work is expected to be finished by the end of the day Sept. 26.

PennDOT reminds drivers to follow official detour signing, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.
