To try to speed some of the work, the CSX crews are working on a 9 days on-5 days off schedule.

CSX has indicated this tentative schedule may change from time to time. This work list is provided with the hope it will allow families who live near these crossings to be prepared for approaching closures.

CSX has indicated they will try to avoid closing adjacent crossings when possible to allow appropriate crossing points.

CSX and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will attempt to provide appropriate schedule updates as the work timeline firms up.
