Joplin News First

“The crossing on Hwy 160 in Sherwin, KS, just west of Columbus, next to the Butterball Feed Mill, is currently blocked due to a tanker car that’s derailed.  Traffic is being diverted to nearby gravel roads.”  #JLNtipster, Matt P

Plan appropriately.  It’s not known how long the delay will take as the car is cleared.
