A railroad crossing on Brownsville Road in Powder Springs was blocked by a train due to a stuck tractor-trailer Thursday, according to the city of Powder Springs. The crossing, located near the intersection of Brownsville and Marietta Street, is now open again.
The city announced the blocked traffic on Facebook at 1:54 p.m. Thursday and said it was open again at 2:26 p.m. The train blocked traffic for approximately an hour, according to Lane Caldwell, the city's interim police chief.
The tractor-trailer got stuck trying to cross the railroad crossing located at Powder Springs Dallas Road and Finch Road, about 1.5 miles west of the Brownsville-Marietta crossing, Caldwell said. There was no wreck — the train was stopped before it reached the tractor trailer.
