Bridge issues have CSX detouring some traffic via Marion to get to Columbus.
The detour was imposed after CSX inspectors found that one of the piers on the former Chesapeake & Ohio bridge south of Scioto Tower in Columbus had severely settled.
Track No. 2 was taken out of service and traffic on Track 1 is restricted to 10 m.p.h.
The line has no crossovers Scioto and River (located just south of the Scioto River bridge) to cross over traffic from Scottslawn Secondary (former Toledo & Ohio Central)
or the Midland Subdivision that would use Track 2 to get into Parsons Yard.
Eastbound trains on the Indianapolis Line that used to go south at Ridgeway on the T&OC are now being rerouted to Marion then around the connection to the ex-C&O.
The power than runs around the train and it then goes south to Columbus.
Some trains have been taken through Marion to Galion or Crestline where the power runs around the train before it proceeds southward on the Columbus Line.
