Train derailment shuts down major Janesville intersection
Expect major traffic problems in downtown Janesville
Commuters trying to get to downtown Janesville Wednesday morning ran into some major problems due to a train derailment.
Rock County dispatch said a call came to them just before 5 a.m. Wednesday about the derailment, near the Five Points intersection in downtown Janesville.
The derailment closed that intersection, along with Academy Street in downtown Janesville for about 3 hours.
The train was carrying grain, so there was no health risk to the community.
