The two railroad crossings in downtown Hamilton will be separately closed to vehicles during the next two weekends for track work.
During the closures, the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority will repair and replace the train tracks at the crossings.
The work will start at the Asbury Street crossing near Bay Road, which will be closed to vehicles at 9 p.m. on Friday, July 21. The closure will continue through Saturday, July 22 at 9 p.m.
The work will then shift to the crossing at Bay and Walnut roads the following weekend. Work will start at 9 p.m. on Friday, July 28 and will continue through Saturday, July 29 and is scheduled to be complete by 9 p.m.
The work is required in order to maintain the safe travel of trains and pedestrians through the area and to re-establish full service as soon as possible, according to the T.
Each street will be closed in both directions at the railroad crossings in order to complete the work, but access to all businesses will be maintained during the work. The municipal parking lot on Asbury Street will also be accessible from the Bay Road end of Asbury Street.
Hamilton police officers will be posted throughout the detour to assist with traffic flow and message boards have been put up to alert commuters.
