Tyler officials urging drivers to find permanent alternate routes

Released by The City Of Tyler:

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Starting Monday, Feb. 6, 2012, Claude Street will be closed permanently at the railroad crossing at Palace Avenue. Vehicles will no longer be permitted to exit eastbound on to Palace Avenue from Claude Street and cars from Palace Avenue will no longer be permitted to turn left or right onto Claude Street.  Claude Street will continue to be accessible from North Ross Avenue and Grand Avenue (please see photo).

Closing Claude Street will enable Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) to install gates at the Palace Avenue railroad crossing. The work to install gates on Palace Avenue has already begun and is the next step toward the City's application for a quiet zone. 

Drivers are urged to seek permanent alternate routes.
