Nov. 21, 2017 – Jackson, WI – The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is working with Canadian National Railway to have a new rail crossing installed across WIS 60, (Main Street) just east of Center Street, in the Village of Jackson in Washington County.
In addition to the new crossing, crews will also improve the approach pavement on the roadway.
To perform this work, crews require a 48-hour full closure to be in effect from Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 7 a.m., until Thursday, Nov. 30 at 7 a.m.
Please note this work is weather dependent and subject to change.
The crossing on Highway 60, especially if a motorist is eastbound, is rather dicey. There’s a pretty significant gap right before the track. Some motorists have been know to swing far to the right … almost to the sidewalk.
If you recall in March 2016, neighbors in Allenton experienced a similar situation that took nearly a year to resolve.
Detours will be posted using County Highway G, County Highway NN and County Highway P to direct motorists around the closure.
