May 3: The Medina Line Project Update

Southwest Gulf Railroad is excited to announce The Medina Line has reached the final phase of construction, and crews have begun laying rail, ties and ballast along the route.

This phase of the construction includes building the seven road crossings, which is being coordinated with Medina County and TxDOT to minimize traffic impacts.

We anticipate construction at road crossing 454 to take place beginning May 9. We will provide updates as we begin construction on additional crossings in the future.

From south to north, crossings will be located at: CR 454, CR 4516, CR 4512, FM 2676 and CR 353. SGRR will exceed TxDOT standards by installing electric warning signals and gates at all roadway crossings except 4512, a minor crossing that will follow TxDOT standard and include appropriate signage.

SGR will communicate road closures in advance to neighbors and stakeholders, and closings will be publicly posted via road signs 14 days in advance. Detours will be posted, and we are coordinating the closures with local police, fire and emergency medical services.

Additional information about SGR and The Medina Line is available at All project updates will be posted at

Neighbors should contact SGR at (800) 474-4086 with questions, comments or concerns relating to construction. SGR will coordinate responses with contractor WT Byler Co. and the project team.
