Tipton closing for three-day rail crossing project

CSX has postponed rail crossing repairs planned on Tipton Street (U.S. 50) in Seymour a week.

U.S. 50 will now close from 7 a.m. Jan. 18 to 7 a.m. Jan. 21.

The detour also has been altered.

Westbound U.S. 50 travelers will be directed around the rail closure via East Street, south to Bruce Street, east to Jeffersonville Avenue, returning north to U.S. 50, while eastbound traffic will be routed south on Carter Street, east on Bruce Street, returning north on East Street to U.S. 50.

CSX maintenance crews originally were scheduled to make crossing repairs beginning Wednesday.
