The Grand Avenue Boulevard overpass above the CSX railroad tracks in Hamilton’s Lindenwald neighborhood will be closed until 6 a.m. Wednesday while construction crews work to put finishing touches on the overpass.
The overpass is commonly known as South Hamilton Crossing, and is only the second east-west street in Hamilton where drivers are not obstructed by train tracks. The other is High Street.
“The contractor is finishing final restoration items for the project and includes applying sealant to bridge deck,” said Rich Engle, Hamilton’s director of engineering.
“Detours are set up for north/south on East Avenue and Pleasant Avenue,” Engle added by email. “East/west are Hanover Street and Laurel Avenue.”
South Hamilton Crossing had been something people wanted for more than a century as a safer way for vehicles to avoid train tracks, and a way for emergency vehicles to also be able to avoid stopping for trains.
