The Camden police and fire departments expressed concern about Monday’s upcoming four-day closure of two key railroad crossings in the city’s Dusty Bend community during a Camden City Council work session Tuesday afternoon. Interim City Manager Mel Pearson highlighted the closures and arranged for Camden Police Department (CPD) Chief Joe Floyd and Camden Fire Department (CFD) Chief John Bowers to speak to council. According to Pearson, CSX Railroad will be making necessary repairs to the crossings -- located at Lyttleton and Broad streets -- Monday through Thursday.
