Two incidents involving train tracks caused traffic problems in the area yesterday.
In Danbury, International Drive was closed between Federal Road and the Eagle Road overpass in the afternoon due to a derailed train car. Three train cars carrying garbage from a processing center jumped the tracks, but remained upright. There were no spills or injuries.
In Bethel, a sinkhole was discovered under the Metro North grade crossing on Greenwood Avenue. The road will be closed through the weekend as engineers replace track, ties and grade crossing plates.
Southbound buses depart 25 minutes earlier than normal train schedules from Danbury and 20 minutes earlier from Bethel to make the train connection at Redding station. Northbound buses will arrive at Bethel and Danbury 15 minutes earlier than train times.
