When the suburb of Murray Hill Heights was platted in 1906 its main thoroughfare, Murray Hill Avenue, was envisioned to be a landscaped boulevard served with a streetcar line similar to St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans.


Several blocks of Edgewood Avenue will be closed in both directions next week while the railroad crossing at the intersection of Edgewood and West 20th Street is replaced.

According to the Florida Department of Transportation, CSX crews will put in a concrete crossing that’s designed to last longer and hold up better under heavy traffic. 

Work on the crossing is set to start at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 13 and wrap up by 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20.
