Removal of five more railroad crossings on the former Union Pacific line is now underway in Colfax. Public Works Director Matt Hammer reported to the city council a joint crew Monday removed the crossings on East Cooper and East Street.
Work was slated to begin Tuesday on the West Cooper crossing, and the crews hope to remove the crossings at Island and Last streets on the west side of main.
Rails at the crossings will be gone and a State Department of Transportation crew will fill and pave over the crossings.
The work follows earlier removal and paving of the crossing on west Wall Street....
