Here's a traffic alert you need to know about on the northwest side.
Cortaro Road will be closed at the railroad tracks starting Thursday at 8 p.m. and will stay closed through 4 p.m. Sunday.
Anyone trying to cross the tracks will be detoured to Ina or Twin Peaks road via Thornydale, Oldfather or Hartman Road when approaching from the east side of the crossing or via the I-10 frontage roads when approaching from the westbound I-10 frontage road or west of the crossing.
The closure is taking place so that Union Pacific can build new tracks there.
A similar closure happened last week at the Ina Road, railroad crossing.
