ELBURN—Installation of a safety fence along the railroad tracks east of First Street in Elburn will be finished soon, Police Chief Steve Smith told the Public Safety Committee on Monday.

Smith said the fence, which will block people from crossing the tracks unsafely, will extend 1,600 feet along the railway near the commuter station. The village began erecting the fence on Nov. 4.
