Macedoonia — City officials were only given 30 minutes notice that Twinsburg Road would close at the railroad tracks Aug. 23 around 12:30 p.m. 

Norfolk Southern Director of Coporate Communications Richard Harris released the following statement to The News Leader Sept. 2 stating the closure was for "routine track maintenance."

"The road was closed temporarily for work on the crossing," Harris said. "The crossing is being paved today and should be opened tomorrow (Sept. 3). End result will improve the crossing both for motorists and train operations."
