Union Pacific Railroad Crossing Upgrade Update

Union Pacific Railroad will begin replacing the railroad crossing on Santa Fe Avenue at Lincoln Avenue on Thursday, September 11, 2014. The work is expected to be completed by Friday, September 19, 2014.

Santa Fe Avenue will be closed to through traffic.  Access can be gained to all properties on either side of the tracks by way of the detour.

City Staff has worked with Union Pacific to minimize the disruption for businesses and the community.  Motorists should expect delays and are asked to proceed with caution for the safety of the crews performing the work.

For additional information, please contact the City of Salina Public Works Department at (785) 309-5725 or Union Pacific Railroad at (402) 544-5459.
