WEIMAR (CBS13) — Neighbors in Weimar say Union Pacific is crossing the line, keeping them from leaving their homes because of construction.

The road is open now but people on the east side of the tracks at Weimar cross road say Wednesday they were unable to cross because of road construction. It’s the only public road in or out of the neighborhood.

A family with seven disabled children worries about emergencies.

“If they can’t get in when one of them is having a seizure that could be the difference between life or death,” said the children’s mother, Amy Hanaway.

Railroad officials say a plan is in place for emergencies. The next scheduled closure is March 2.

They say if anyone has trouble getting out they should call railroad police.

    Is the UP planning to double track the entire route that goes through the Weimar area in the future?
