Update on upcoming Norfolk Southern crossing closures

Last week, the City of Goshen informed residents that Norfolk Southern plans to close several crossings throughout the month of July to install new rails with an approximate start date of July 8th. The work is now expected to begin on Tuesday, July 9th, or Wednesday, July 10th, and will continue through Wednesday, July 31.

Norfolk Southern will work from North to South, starting with the Lusher Avenue crossing in Elkhart. Below is an updated list of impacted crossings. Each crossing is expected to be closed for 1-4 days, and rail crews are expected to cover 2-4 miles per day.

The City’s engineering department has been in communication with Norfolk Southern since the city was notified last week and will continue to stay in contact throughout this project. The City will continue to provide any updates on closures via the City’s website and social media.

Residents can also find which crossings will be closed via the City’s road closures GIS map.
