A city street will be closed at 7:00 Thursday night to allow for rail crossing repairs.

The City of Sedalia says the work will be completed on the Union Pacific rail crossing at S. Harding Ave. from U.S. Highway 50 on the south and N. Harding Ave. from E. Harvey Street on the north.

The street will be closed to through traffic beginning at 7:00 p.m., Nov. 9. The repair will continue until 4:00 a.m., Nov. 10.
