Tracks Blocked

Posted on 29th June 2010 at 07:46

Train traffic through the area was shut down for about an hour last night, as maintenance crews from Burlington Northern-Santa Fe dealt with a blockage of the rails on Pleasant Hill Road. At about 5:30 pm, a person living in the 7800 block of Pleasant Hill reported that a large cottonwood had fallen across the tracks. A Sheriff’s Deputy responded to the scene, confirming that the tracks were blocked, and that someone with a chain saw was needed to remove the tree. Train traffic was shut down while a maintenance crew was called in; they arrived on the scene at about 6 pm.
