Leander Starting May 3, drivers must detour around the railroad crossing near the intersection of East Crystal Falls Parkway and US 183 because of ongoing road construction.

Drivers can still access businesses east of the railroad tracks, City Engineer Wayne Watts said.

Watts said the portion of Crystal Falls Parkway between Leander Drive and US 183 may be closed through June 27, but city engineers hope to finish the project sooner. Until the crossing is completed, motorists traveling on the road will be detoured.

The city is spending $1.9 million on the last stage of a five-year plan to repave and widen the Crystal Falls Parkway with added curbs and turn lanes.
