MOULTRIE — Workers remove an abandoned railroad crossing on North Main Street near Sylvester Drive Wednesday. Demolition began Wednesday morning and appeared to be about half-finished at 7:30 p.m. as workers continued their efforts under bright lights. Meanwhile, the state Department of Transportation began resurfacing North Main Street from just south of the abandoned crossing well into downtown Moultrie. A workman said that project is expected to take several days. Both projects have caused lane closures on the busy street.
