Railroad Work Will Close Crossing Near Underwood School

From Oct. 8 to 12, single neighborhood crossing will be under construction, forcing some local, commuter and school traffic onto Mayfair Road.

The railroad crossing on North 115th Street between Watertown Plank Road and Underwood Parkway will be closed for construction from Oct. 8 through 12, the Wauwatosa Public Works Department has announced.

The crossing is within a couple of blocks of Underwood Elementary School on West Potter Road and may disrupt some morning dropoffs and drive-aways. North 115th is the only street in the neighborhood to cross the tracks, and the closest detour is via busy North Mayfair Road.

"Road closed ahead" signs will be placed at intersections at least a block away from the closing, including one at 115th and Potter.

The work is railroad construction and only the crossing itself will be shut down. Local traffic will still be able to reach all points short of the crossing.
