Delays expected during railroad track work in Salem

SALEM, Ohio (WYTV) – The replacement of railroad tracks in Columbiana County could cause delays for drivers.

Norfolk Southern workers are replacing a stretch of track in Salem at South Lincoln Avenue.

The road could be closed for 15 minute intervals as a rail car comes through and drops rail beginning at the Ellsworth Avenue crossing, continuing to Mullins, Newgarden and West Wilson.

A flagger will be stationed at the crossing to alert drivers.

The project should be finished by the end of May.

A similar project to replace track on the southern end of the city was done last year.
