City to re-open downtown closed railroad crossings streets

Citizens have demonstrated their discomfort with the previous decision of closing railroad crossings at Williams, Rio Grande and N Church streets.

Eagle Pass, TX - City Council has approved the temporary re-opening of Williams, Rio Grande and North Church Streets while it is determined if the closure will result permanent.

The targeted closure of streets has been a heavily debated issue throughout the community.


According to City of Eagle Pass Mayor and City Council the railroad crossings at the three streets are under discussion of being closed in order to create a quiet zone for the neighborhood around those streets.


During almost three months, the streets were kept closed at the intersection with railroad tracks for an alleged study being held by the City.
