MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Plymouth city officials said work continued on Monday to clear a 22-car derailment that occurred on Sunday afternoon.
Crews from the city, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and Canadian Pacific Railway create a temporary route north of the scene – off Northwest Boulevard and Schmidt Lake Road – to remove cars and restore wetlands to proximity. The damaged tracks were repaired Monday morning and this section of track was reopened.
The Canadian Pacific train was carrying contents including molten sulfur, asphalt and lumber. City officials say a crack was found on a car, but it was repaired and there were no leaks.
Canadian Pacific officials say crews continue to monitor soil and water quality in the area. People who live in the area can email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and concerns.
