U.S. 41 Closed In Gibson County After Train Derailment
GIBSON COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a detour for U.S. 41 in Gibson County.
Following a train derailment on Sunday, June 17, INDOT crews were dispatched as first responders began working to assess the situation. A fire burning with potentially volatile and hazardous materials as fuel prompted an emergency evacuation within a mile radius of the site. U.S. 41 is included in this area and as a precaution INDOT has closed U.S. 41 from State Road 68 to S.R. 64 in Princeton.
The official detour for this closure is as follows:
- Northbound: S.R. 68 EB to I-69 NB, I-69 NB to S.R. 64 WB, S.R. 64 WB to U.S. 41 NB
- Southbound: S.R. 64 EB to I-69 SB, I-69 SB to S.R. 68 WB, S.R. 68 WB to U.S. 41 SB.
At this time, crews are unable to provide a timeline for reopening U.S. 41. Residents and motorists should check with their local emergency management agency and employers for further information about the incident and instructions concerning routes to work facilities.
INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
