Update: Road closures due to Union Pacific rail and tie replacement project

Union Pacific will be replacing rails and ties along the Tyler railroad system. The railroad will need to close intersecting roads to lay rail through the crossings and replace ties starting Friday, Feb. 8 until Friday, Feb. 15. All closures will be from 11 p.m. until 10 a.m. There will be no through traffic.
 
The following streets will be closed where they intersect with the Railroad: North Border Ave., North Spring Ave., North Palace Ave., West Elm St., West Houston St. and South Lyons Ave.
 
They will be focusing on North Spring Ave. and West Houston St. on Sunday, Feb. 10 to open the streets by 6 a.m. before church traffic begins. 
 
In addition to the closures, Union Pacific will be flagging numerous crossings, as the crossing signals will be out of service due to equipment occupying the track. 
 
Union Pacific will notify emergency services prior to all closures and again upon reopening the roads.
 
Below are maps that highlight the tracks they will be working on.
 
For more information, contact project manager Joe Prado at jprado@roadsafetraffic.com or (405) 200-4867.
