Several roads will be closed in Edmond, Oklahoma, as crews begin railroad repairs at a number of crossings within the city limits. 

According Edmond City officials, beginning Thursday, February 26, Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad will begin minor rail repairs at several railroad crossings in the Edmond City Limits.

This work will require the closing of each road during the repair process. Traffic will be unable to pass in both directions and motorists will need to determine an alternate route.
