In Thomasville, beginning Wednesday, Oct. 1, CSX will begin the first of two rail crossing improvement projects. The first project will be at the crossing on East Pinetree Boulevard, near Metcalf Avenue. It's expected to take one day to complete.

"We are detouring citizens around the construction site using Metcalf Avenue and Smith Avenue," said City Engineer Jerry Pionessa. "Anyone who normally travels this stretch of Pinetree is advised to plan alternate routes and to expect possible traffic delays while work takes place."
