BATON ROUGE - The state re-opened the railroad crossing on Brightside, allowing traffic to once again move from Nicholson.

The crossing - and the street - were closed so crews could rework the railroad crossing ahead of a revamped intersection.  The re-designed intersection will add left turn lanes, a new track crossing, asphalt, and signals.

Brightside Ln. was closed at the tracks from October 28th until November 22nd.  It re-opened a few hours ahead of schedule.  The state previously said it would re-open at 5:00 PM Friday. 

DOTD anticipates the entire project may be finished by the end of January.
