St. Augustine Main Line rail crossing will be closed to traffic through Jan. 27 as part of scheduled rail-crossing upgrade work. Even though the city will be directing traffic, the public is urged to avoid traveling on St. Augustine Road.

The city is assisting in traffic control to minimize inconvenience. Efforts are being made to detour traffic. Both northbound and southbound traffic will be required to turn off St. Augustine Road. St. Augustine Road will also be closed for construction Jan. 31 to Feb. 3.

CSX Transportation is working on several rail crossings in the City of Valdosta. CSX will install concrete panels along the tract resulting in a smoother crossing for vehicles.

The city purchased the panels which will look similar to the crossing on Baytree Road near the Mall. Crossings and roads will be closed to traffic during the following construction schedule:

- St. Augustine Main Line -- Through Jan. 27

- St. Augustine Side Line -- Jan. 31 to Feb. 3

- Savannah Avenue -- Feb. 7-10

- Fry Street -- Feb. 14-17

- Clay Road -- Feb. 21-24
