Blocked Train Crossing Concerns Mosinee Residents

Imagine trying to get to work in the morning and being delayed for more than two hours because a train won't move off the tracks.

It's a situation dozens of Mosinee residents have been dealing with for months.

They say that trains have been blocking the one entrance into their neighborhood, often for more than two and a half hours.

Residents say that while the wait is inconvenient,
they are more concerned about safety.

"There's a lot of elderly people out here and if they would need an ambulance it would be a bad deal. It is something they should work on." says resident Mike Malitz.

The train issue has gotten the attention of local lawmakers. State Senator Jerry Petrowski says he has voiced his concerns to Canadian National about the stopped trains. He says they are working to determine what is causing the trains to stop for such a long period of time.
