Ogden Avenue between La Grange Road and East Avenue is scheduled to be closed from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the next three Sundays (8/13, 820, 8/27), so that the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad can perform repairs to their bridge. The scope of work includes the replacement of all railroad track, ties, crossing mats and asphalt. Traffic will be detoured to East Avenue, 47th Street, and La Grange Road.
Trains passing through the work zone will be sounding their horns to alert the work crews. Additional noise is expected from railroad equipment performing the maintenance work.
Questions regarding the project are being fielded by BNSF's Manager of Safety Passenger Operations, Brian Soyk at (630) 692-6297. Road Safe Traffic Systems is also available to answer questions at (316) 778-2112.
