Residents of a northeast St. Cloud neighborhood are finally getting their railroad crossing quiet zone. Efforts to create a train whistle-free crossing at 4 1/2 Street Northeast have been in the works for years.
Several railroad crossings in Sauk Rapids after open after being closed for maintenance. Sauk Rapids Public Works Director Peter Eckhoff says the 10th Street crossing by Municipal Park, Fisher's crossing and the Southbound lane on 2nd Avenue are now open.
Railroad repairs will force the closure of a railroad crossing in northeast St. Cloud next week. The crossing along 2nd Avenue Northeast will be closed between East St. Germain Street and 2nd Avenue Northeast.
