CINCINNATI — A CSX train derailment in Queensgate on Jan. 24 will keep streets in the area closed until the weekend.

Evans St. and Dalton Ave will remain closed to give crews time to remove debris and inspect an overpass near Mill Creek that was damaged when the train went off its tracks.

Drivers should use alternate routes such as the Eighth Street viaduct.

Officials said approximately 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel leaked onto Gest Street before crews were able to contain the spill.

CSX said in a statement that the leak came from a locomotive derailed on the overpass, but no leaks or spills came from any of the train cars.

No crew members were hurt in the incident, the company said.
