A temporary road closure in La Crosse that was set to begin Monday has been canceled.

The City of La Crosse Public Works Department says Ward Avenue from Losey Boulevard to 32nd Street was supposed to be closed to thru traffic so the BNSK Railroad could work on the rail crossing.

La Crosse Public Works Director Dale Hexom says the cancelation was more to do with the number of trains scheduled to be on the track than the snow cover.

There’s no word on when the project will be rescheduled.
