Construction is scheduled to start after the Metra evening rush hour on Friday, April 25, on the Union Pacific Railroad in Wheaton and continue through Sunday, April 27.
Crews will be working around the clock to cut over the College Avenue control point, which is part of Union Pacific’s signal system update, according to a city of Wheaton press release.
Construction will require crews to use temporary lighting towers between President Street and Cross Street, and crews will be at the crossings between President Street and West Street.
Union Pacific said this project will produce construction noise. Also, all trains traveling through the work area will be required to blow their horns for safety purposes, according to the news release.
