A rail crossing used by a lot of heavy trucks was closed Monday but expected to be rebuilt and reopened later this week.

Iowa Interstate Railroad made a temporary repair about a year ago to the crossing that links the west end of First Street in La Salle to Brunner Street in Peru, said La Salle public works superintendent Sam McNeilly.

On Monday, the crossing was closed and excavating, a section of rail was out, and a rail crew was working to build a new crossing, this time with concrete, for the car and truck traffic.

Confirming that rail crews usually work fast to get the trains moving again, McNeilly said he was told the crossing would likely be closed only through Wednesday.
