To facilitate the work, Topstone Road will be closed at the crossing beginning at 10 AM on Friday, March 31, until Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 4 PM.
The project will be performed and a detour will be implemented via signage by Metro-North Commuter Railroad. Work will be confined to the area of the at-grade crossing.
