The State Highway Administration announced Thursday that Bucher John Road will be closed at the railroad crossing near Union Bridge beginning July 17.
Maryland Midland Railway will be replacing the railroad crossing surface and installing new crossing signals. Weather permitting, the road will reopen the afternoon of July 22.
During the closure, work crews will detour traffic through Union Bridge using Main Street, Union Bridge Road, and Main Road.
Anyone with questions about the project can contact Maryland Midway Railway at 410-775-7718.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
