Drivers in Washington will notice detours for a railroad crossing repair project.

INDOT says the project is slated to begin on or around Monday, March 1 when CSX crews will begin what is expected to be a four-day project to repair the railroad crossing.

The work will shut down the railroad crossing on State Road 57 in Washington. During the closure, local traffic will have access up to the point of closure, but all thru traffic should use the official detour following U.S. 50, I-69, and S.R. 58.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
