Nassau County, Florida – On behalf of CSX, the Nassau County Road Department is issuing a “Notice of Intent to Begin Construction” on the following railroad crossings due to repairs needed – All crossings could be closed from to 3-5 days. CSX will have rock staged at the crossings for first responders if they have to get across. These dates can change, with or without notice, due to unforeseen circumstances.
