Butler road to close at railroad overpass on Tuesday

Butler Road will be closed to traffic at the railroad overpass between Hillegas and Goshen roads on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to a statement from the Traffic Engineering Department.

Maintenance crews will be working overhead on Butler Road, and there will be limited space for traffic through the area.

Since the work is expected to last only a few hours, there will not be a marked detour, and Butler Road will be opened to local traffic up to the railroad overpass, the statement said.
