Crews removing the shoo-fly at the Ramona Street crossing
The railway crossings at Ramona Street and Del Mar Avenue continue to remain closed until October 3 while crews remove the temporary railway track. Once the track is removed, construction crews will then mill both bridges to provide a smooth transition for motorists as they travel across.

During construction, please be advised that traffic on Mission Road near the crossings may be reduced to one lane. Detours are available on the city's website, and we encourage you to allow more time for travel while both crossings are closed.
