Rail Company Waits Until Road is Fully Functional to Close it for Work

Access to Bliss road again about to be a problem in La Crosse.  Burlington Northern will shut down the railroad crossing at Main Street on Monday for a few days in order to reconstruct the crossing.  Traffic will still be able to get up the bluff at Bliss road, getting there by a Cass street detour.  Bliss road, the city's only direct access to Grandad Bluff Park, was shut down for more than a year after a washout in 2010.  The road reopened to traffic last fall.  No word yet on why Burlington Northern waited until this spring to do the crossing work.
