Union Pacific Railroad plans to do several upgrades over the next few weeks on their railroad crossings and road closures are expected.

Employees plan to do the repairs along Goold St., Washington Ave., and Dekoven Avenue.

Railroad closures and detour routes:

  • Goold St., from N. Memorial Drive to Douglas Avenue will be closed Monday through Aug. 11. The eastbound detour route will be N. Memorial Drive to Yout Street to Douglas Avenue back to Goold Street. The westbound detour route will be Douglas Avenue to Yout Street to N. Memorial Drive back to Goold Street.

Repairs to Washington and DeKoven avenues have not formally been scheduled. However, the City of Racine is expected to post the maintenance schedule once Union Pacific sends it to them.
