Amtrak will be repaving four railroad crossings in Kalamazoo this summer.
Although the work is not expected to affect operations of Amtrak trains, when combined with another road construction project planned for downtown Kalamazoo, it will create challenges getting to and from the station.
The crossing are located at West Main Street, West Kalamazoo Avenue, North Westnedge Avenue and North Park Street. Detours will be posted for the four crossing.
The Michigan Department of Transportation also will launch a rebuilding of a four-mile stretch of M-43.
During that project, M-43 will be reduced to a single lane for most of 2017.
MDOT plans to mill and replace pavement on a section of M-43, also known as West Michigan Avenue, from US-131 east to Michikal Street, and a section of M-43, also known as West Kalamazoo Avenue, from Pitcher Street east to Douglas Avenue.
Kalamazoo is served by Amtrak’ Wolverine Service and Blue Water.
