by Staff Reports

CSX railroad has notified Coweta County officials of upcoming plans to close two rail crossings. 

The Coweta driving public is asked to be aware and make plans for appropriate detours, said Patricia Palmer, community and human resources director for Coweta County government.

Starting on Wednesday, April 17 at 7 a.m., CSX will close and begin reconstructing the rail crossing at Minnie Sewell Road and U.S. Hwy 29. Plans are for the crossing to re-open on Friday, April 19.

Message boards are going up at Minnie Sewell road as soon as possible to help provide notice, Palmer said.

"The crossing at Groover Road is also in plans to be closed and under construction," she said. "However, we do not yet have a date for that work. Notification on this closure will be provided as soon as we receive it."
