The Metra railroad crossing on Milwaukee Avenue in downtown Libertyville will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic from 6 a.m. Saturday, May 17 to the evening of Monday, May 19.

The crossing was closed May 2 to May 7 for an emergency replacement of the crossing, but the road approaches were not pitched at the correct angle, creating a bumpy situation that is being corrected this weekend.

Officials say the previous detour of Butterfield Road, Route 176 and Route 137 will apply. All businesses will remain open and local traffic will be allowed.
