MD Jonline reported that a local road connecting Valley and Fremont has been closed while Union Pacific cleans up a coal train derailment. Ms Raquel Espinoza, spokeswoman for UP, said the railway is hopeful that Old Highway 275/Reichmuth Road will reopen by Wednesday afternoon. A detour using Highway 275 has been set up.

Twenty-three railcars derailed about 6:30 AM on January 8.

She said that “Union Pacific recognizes the road closure is impacting drivers. We apologize for the disruption and appreciate the community’s patience.”
