Train blocking Natchitoches street Tuesday expected to move shortly

Posted: Updated:
NATCHITOCHES, LA (KSLA) -

A Union Pacific train that has been blocking a Natchitoches street Tuesday should be moved within the next 15 minutes.

The train has been blocking Hill Street for several hours, making it impossible for residents in that section of the city to exit the area.

Union Pacific has confirmed the stoppage, saying it was caused by unexpected delays of a train operating ahead of it. That delay has put the crew over their service hours, and they can no longer operate the train before rest.

A new crew is on board the train and Union Pacific officials say it should be moving by 4:15 p.m.

Call 888-877-7267 to report emergencies and blocked crossings to Union Pacific.
