Repair work is complete on the railroad crossing on Smith Ferry Road near U.S. 64. Motorists have been detoured for more than a week after the crossing was closed, said Lewis McLemore, Port of Muskogee operations manager. The crossing had settled because of rail traffic. The repairs cost approximately $40,000. The concrete must dry for a few days, and the crossing should be open to traffic Monday, McLemore said.
