Closures of Atascadero railroad crossings to delay traffic

Motorists traveling in Atascadero will be delayed this month as several railroad crossings in the city close for track tie maintenance.

Union Pacific Railroad plans to close railroad crossings on Monday and Tuesday on Halcon Road; Wednesday and Thursday on Curbaril Road; and Oct. 13 and 14 on Chico Road, according to a city news release.

Motorists will be provided with a detour route via signage at each crossing and will have access to their homes during the work, the news release states.
