Work has finally started on Festus train trestle

(Festus) After some delays from the previous schedule, work has now started to replace and improve the train trestle in Festus along Horine Road slash Cromwell Road. Festus City Administrator Greg Camp says BNSF has started to replace some major pieces.

Camp says there will be some big dates coming up on which the major work will take place.

Drivers in the area can expect some closures at that intersection from time to time in the coming weeks. The City of Festus does not have a timeline for when the work will be completed.
