DEARBORN, MI – On Wednesday October 28th, 2020, at approximately 5:45 AM, troopers were dispatched to the Eastbound I-94 exit lanes to Michigan Ave and Wyoming Ave in the City of Dearborn to assist with a road closure caused by a CSX train derailment.
Michigan State Police 911 were advised a train car had become derailed over I-94 near Wyoming Ave and Dearborn Police were headed to check on it.
Troopers arrived on scene and observed a flat car hanging over the exit lanes (underpass) to Michigan/Wyoming and it had destroyed part of the bridge.
Out of precaution Eastbound and Westbound I-94 was closed temporarily before CSX railroad determined it was safe. CSX advises it will be 3-5 hours before their equipment will be available to correct the issue.
Once their equipment becomes available, I-94 in BOTH directions will need to be closed. Currently, the exit lanes to Michigan/Wyoming are closed.
MSP will provide further updates as they become available. Please check back for that information.
