Lake State to reconstruct rail crossing on Long Lake Ave.

A section of Long Lake Avenue in Alpena will be closed for most of next week so Lake State Railway can reconstruct the railroad crossing near its headquarters, north of Commerce Drive.

The work starts Monday and is expected to be completed by Friday unless there are weather or construction delays.

To accommodate the project, Long Lake Avenue will be closed at the railroad tracks. All traffic originating north of the tracks must take Long Lake Avenue to Hamilton Road.
