Railroad crossing closing for replanking

Replanking work by BNSF railroad will create a weeklong around-the-clock closure in Bowie at the State Highway 59 crossing between Montague and Clay Streets.

Texas Department of Transportation Public Information Officer Adele Lewis said since the job involves two tracks, it is expected to take five days to complete.

The closure will start July 14. It should be reopened by July 18.
