Major street in SC’s capital closed to fix railroad crossing

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – A major street in South Carolina’s capital will be closed this week as crews do maintenance and repairs to a railroad crossing.

Norfolk Southern says Assembly Street in Columbia south of the Statehouse will be closed starting Monday for most of the week.

Crews hope to reopen the crossing between Catawba Street and Whaley Street by Thursday.

Transportation officials say about 25,000 vehicles a day travel on that section of Assembly Street, although traffic volume has decreased significantly with businesses shut down over the coronavirus pandemic.

There will be a detour set up.
