****UPDATE: Carrboro officials said around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday that the crossing arms were functioning and the roadway had reopened.****

The eastbound lane of East Main Street in Carrboro is closed due to malfunctioning railroad crossing arms.

The railroad crossing arms were stuck in the down position with crews are working to repair them.

The issue was first reported around 7 a.m. on Tuesday by Chapel Hill Transit director Brian Litchfield.

Several Chapel Hill Transit bus routes have been rerouted because of the repairs as well.

One user on Twitter suggested that today may the perfect opportunity to break out the bike if you’re looking to commute between Carrboro and Chapel Hill.
