The Claremont Concord Railroad will be replacing the railroad crossing on Plains Road beginning Monday October 7th, 2013 and will complete work on Friday October 11th, 2013. The current asphalt crossing will be replaced with a pre-cast concrete panel crossing with new heavier duty rail. The pre-cast concrete crossing has a long lifespan that can withstand heavier traffic loads. As a result of the construction, Plains Rd will be closed at the crossing during construction. A detour will be in place that redirects traffic from Plains Rd using Maple Ave, Pleasant St and Sullivan St. LED Message boards have been in place adjacent to the crossing alerting drivers of the upcoming work and will be moved to the beginning of the detour on each end when construction begins.
