HAGERSTOWN -- Work to replace an uneven CSX railroad crossing near Hagerstown City Park is under way.

The work to replace the Virginia Avenue crossing, close to the former Grille at Park Circle restaurant, began at 7 a.m.

The railroad company and the City of Hagerstown say the work will take a maximum of four days and require slight detours.

Workers will remove existing rails, timbers and railbeds and rebuild the crossing with new materials, the press release says.

New bituminous pavement will be applied.

Traffic will be directed to Memorial Boulevard and Summit Avenue.

The work is scheduled to be finished by Friday at 4:30 p.m.
