Cortaro train tracks closing later this week

Union Pacific Railroad’s double-tracking moves up Interstate 10 to Cortaro Road this week.

The closure begins Thursday at 8 p.m. and lasts until Sunday at 4 p.m. Motorists looking to cross the tracks will be detoured to Ina or Twin Peaks road via Thornydale, Oldfather or Hartman road when approaching from the east side of the crossing or via the I-10 frontage roads when approaching from the westbound I-10 frontage road or west of the crossing.

Businesses near the tracks will remain open and accessible. In the event of inclement weather or unforeseen conditions, the schedule may be delayed.

UPRR’s contractor finished double-tracking at Ina Road this past Sunday.
