Light-rail work closes crossing at Ferndale Road
The Ferndale Road railroad crossing between Broadview and Baltimore & Annapolis boulevards will be closed for about four weeks because of light-rail construction.
The road was closed yesterday so workers could begin laying track for the southern extension of the state's Central Light Rail line, the Mass Transit Administration announced.
Workers also will finish work on the planned Ferndale light-rail station, which will open next spring adjacent to the railroad crossing.
For the next month, motorists should use Third Avenue as a detour, the MTA said.
