Map - Railroad road crossings list

Beginning on Monday, Feb. 27, Norfolk Southern will be closing at-grade road crossings for rail maintenance work along its main track through Danville. The work will continue through the end of the week.

Road crossings will be closed for one to three hours while Norfolk Southern lays rail through the crossing.

Crews will begin at the Clearview Drive crossing. Norfolk Southern will set up a detour for Clearview Drive in the Pinetag neighborhood at the emergency access road off Oak Creek Drive onto Corning Drive.

Once work is completed at Clearview Drive, the crew will move to other crossings. Here is a list of the main railroad crossings scheduled for maintenance (also see attached map) :

  1. Clearview Drive
  2. Private (golf course)
  3. Hunter Street
  4. S. Edgewood Drive
  5. N. Edgewood Drive
  6. Stokesland Avenue
  7. Wooding Avenue
  8. Holbrook Street
  9. Jefferson Street
  10. Monument Street
  11. Lynn Street
  12. Halifax Road
  13. Private (off E. Franklin Turnpike)

Motorists should obey the flashing red lights and gates at the railroad tracks and select an alternate route when the crossing is closed.

Additional closures will be required by Norfolk Southern at a future date, tentatively scheduled for April to complete the rail replacement work. Additional notification will be provided at that time.
