Cincinnati Street Still Closed by CSX Derailment

A Cincinnati street closed earlier this week due to a CSX derailment is expected to remain closed through Friday.

Gest Street, which passes beneath the Queensgate Yard complex, was closed after the derailment last Sunday.

Gest remains closed between Evans Street and Dalton Avenue while clean up crews remove the wreckage, which involved two locomotives and seven freight cars.

Railroad officials also said the bridge will need to be inspected before vehicular traffic can pass beneath it again.

CSX officials said that although the cause of the derailment remains under investigation, there is no indication that remote operation of one of the locomotive contributed to the derailment.
