This crossing is located on the UP Pequot Line.
In 2017, a new logistics center in
Coal City started being built and will be served by this line. As
such, UP is upgrading this dormant track with new ties and other
various track improvements, and also they've upgraded all of the
crossings between Braceville and the new facility, including this
one. New gateless signals were installed as well as a new
bungalow. The old B&O CPL north of the crossing is now gone.
