Liberty Pike railroad crossing to close for repair, Thursday

Post Date:02/27/2019 5:00 PM

If your commute includes crossing the tracks on Liberty Pike (near The Factory), you will need to detour starting at about 7am on Thursday 2/28. CSX will be closing the crossing while they complete repairs. The crossing will not re-open until the work is complete, which could be as late as Saturday.

Murfreesboro Rd and Franklin Rd are the designated alternates. Detour signs will be in place. Motorists should plan on an increase in traffic and travel times on those alternate routes.
