Detours Begin in New Hope for Boone Avenue Railroad Crossing Repairs
The city of New Hope and Canadian Pacific Railway started repairing a railroad crossing on Boone Avenue between 51st Avenue North and Science Center Drive on Monday morning. The project is expected to last two to three weeks.
Boone Avenue will be closed to through-traffic. All drivers should follow detours.
The New Hope City Council approved a joint powers agreement between the city and the railway in April. The agreement outlines that Canadian Pacific will be in charge of design, engineering, construction and administration of the project. New Hope will furnish the labor, material and work equipment.
The total cost of the project is more than $101,560 and the total cost to New Hope is $80,560. To learn more click here.
