MARIETTA, Ga. — An important through-route in and out of Marietta Square will be closed about two hours Tuesday afternoon because of a train stuck on the tracks, according to police.
The Marietta Police Department reported the train on the tracks is blocking Whitlock Ave., which is situated toward the west end of the square.
The department said the CSX rail company had advised them the train was "being checked now for a potential mechanical issue" and that it would "not be able to move until the conductor inspects each car."
"It may be up to 2 hours before it can move again," Marietta Police said. "Please use alternate routes."
