Four railroad crossings will be closed for maintenance through the weekend, the city of Lilburn said.

The closures are part of an ongoing project by CSX to replace rail ties on a stretch of track in Gwinnett County. Crews began work on March 5, starting at opposite ends of the rail line in Dacula and on the Gwinnett-DeKalb county line.
