Adding to a long list of local summer staples that will be missing this year, Crossroads Village & Huckleberry Railroad will not be opening for the summer of 2020. Amid coronavirus concerns, the popular Genesee County tourist destination will remain closed for the entire summer.

The announcement was made Thursday by the Park Commission. Genesee County Parks Director Barry June said, "This was a difficult decision for the Park Commission. They felt it was the correct one for the many, elderly staff and volunteers that make Crossroads the excellent venue that it is."

Opened in 1976, this is the first time Crossroads Village & Huckleberry Railroad have had to delay their opening. The goal is to be ready to open for the Halloween and Christmas seasonal events.
