CHURCHS FERRY, N.D. (AP) - Officials on Wednesday are closing a railroad crossing on state Highway 281 at Churchs Ferry, as they work on raising the tracks.

The state Transportation Department says motorists in that area will need to take an alternate route while the work is done. The department is handling the roadwork and BNSF Railway crews are handling the work on the track. Officials didn’t estimate how long the crossing will be closed.

Work on the threatened track in the flooded Devils Lake basin has been ongoing in recent years.
