EDMOND, Okla.- A project will be slowing down drivers in Edmond on Monday as a railroad crossing is shut down for repairs.

Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad will shut down the crossing on Danforth, between Broadway and Thomas Dr., for repairs.

Officials say the tracks are sinking and need to be raised back to the roadway grade.

Traffic will not be able to get through either direction.

Repairs should be completed by the end of Wednesday.

Until then, officials recommend that drivers take an alternate route.

The railroad says they wanted to make sure this project was finished before the upcoming school year.
