Traffic Advisory: Road Closure at Elk Grove-Florin Road Union Pacific Railroad Crossing August 8-12

Posted: 08/04/2016

Union Pacific Railroad has scheduled repairs to their railroad crossing at Elk Grove-Florin Rd that will result in the closure of Elk Grove-Florin Road between Sheldon Road and Bond Road beginning next Monday, August 8 through Friday, August 12.

This closure will impact all northbound and southbound through traffic on Elk Grove –Florin Road travelling between Sheldon Road and Bond Road including emergency and pedestrian traffic. A full 24-hour closure will be in place over the five day period. Access for all property owners and businesses will be maintained.

Increased Travel Times & Detours: Through traffic is advised to avoid this area during the closure period. Roadway users are advised to use alternative routes until project work is completed (see detour map). Detour signs and electronic message boards will be in place to alert motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists about the temporary closure.

Construction Activities: Project work to repair the railroad crossing will be performed by Union Pacific work crews as part of a regional repair project.

Repair work is also anticipated for the Bond Road and Calvine Road crossings later this month.  Work on Bond Road is tentatively scheduled August 15-19.

Closure Period: The City of Elk Grove understands the challenges and inconvenience that commuters, residents, businesses, and pedestrians will experience during the closure period and ask for the public’s patience and cooperation as we work to complete this project as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Re-opening: This stretch of Elk Grove-Florin Road is expected to re-open by 5:00 pm on Friday, August 12.

For questions or more information, please contact the Public Works Maintenance hotline at (916) 687-3005.
