The 19th Avenue rail crossing will be completely closed to traffic from Tuesday, Sept. 6 through Wednesday, Sept. 7, according to a recent village statement. The crossing’s closure is due to a Railroad Ave. water main and roadway improvements project.
Motorists will be able to detour along St. Charles Road to 9th Ave., and then along Lake St. toward 19th Ave., according to the statement.
19th Ave., between St. Charles Rd. and Railroad Ave., will still be open to allow local traffic to access area businesses. Local traffic will also be open for access to businesses in Melrose Park on 19th Ave. between Main St. and Lake St.
“The ultimate closure of 19thAvenue will occur just north of the tracks and just south of Railroad Avenue,” the statement noted.
Anyone with questions is asked to call the Village of Maywood at (708) 450-6300.
