Train Cars Removed at Plymouth Derailment Site, Pineview Lane Back Open
Canadian Pacific has finished removing the derailed train cars from the area near Pineview Lane and reopened the road to traffic. The city released details on Monday, saying cleanup of the site continues as crews haul away lumber and rock, restore pavement and remediate wetland areas.
The city of Plymouth says most of the site restoration work will happen during daylight hours, but the railroad crews may need to complete routine maintenance work overnight. As a safety precaution, train crews will continue to sound their horns when personnel and equipment are in close proximity to the track.
The Canadian Pacific train derailed on Sunday, March 7, leaving 22 train cars carrying sulfur, asphalt and lumber near the tracks. No one was injured and a cause has not been released. The cleanup work is expected to last into the summer.
