Railroad work closes Main Street in Clifton

A main road in the Town of Clifton in Virginia closed earlier than expected on Thursday to complete maintenance work at the railroad crossing.

Clifton Vice Mayor Regan McDonald said Main Street would be closed in both directions at the crossing, as the Northern Southern Railroad will do work from 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The town closed the stretch before 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

Some 16,000 daily travelers use the stretch.

Below is the affected area.
