Railroad crossings around campus will be undergoing work April 25 and 26, according to an email from Smith Jackson, vice president for student life.

Beginning on Wednesday afternoon, the railroad crossing at Oak Street by the Magnolia Cemetery will be the first area of construction. After the Oak Street crossing is completed, Thursday morning, according to the email, crews will begin working on the tracks at the Church Street and Williamson Avenue crossings. 

Jackson said students should not walk through the closed crossings, and if driving, he advised using caution.

"Be aware that equipment will be traveling along the tracks so please listen for horns and look before you travel across the crossing," Jackson said.

A bus will run every 15 minutes between the Inman Admissions Building bus stop and Trollinger House at the corner of Trollinger Street and Holt Avenue for students who usually cross the train tracks on foot, specifically residents of the Station at Mill Point and residences south of the railroad tracks.  Jackson said the first bus will depart at 7:15 a.m. from Trollinger House and run until access across Williamson Avenue is reopened to pedestrian traffic. 

According to the email, students should plan to spend an extra 10 minutes commuting around these detours.
