East Washington Street between Portsmouth Boulevard and Philhower Drive will be closed from 6 a.m., Wednesday July 25th to 6 p.m., Friday, July 27th due to planned roadwork. CSX has advised they will be working to replace the railroad crossing at that location. Detours will be in place for the duration of the work.
The work should result in an improved ride over the rails and less maintenance required at the crossing. This work is being performed by CSX at the request of the City of Suffolk. CSX’s work schedule and closure duration are dependent upon weather and other factors not under the City’s control.
