The reconstruction of the Falls Road Railroad crossing on North Transit Street will begin Monday and last about two weeks, the city Engineering Department announced Wednesday.
As a result, North Transit, part of Route 78, will be closed between Green and Caledonia streets.
During the project, traffic will be detoured via Grand, Hawley and Ontario streets. To assist traffic flow, some temporary no-parking zones will be set up along those streets.
The city urged drivers to be especially careful for schoolchildren walking along the streets during the detour period.
Falls Road Railroad plans to reconstruct its crossing on Michigan Street after the North Transit job is completed.
