A stopped freight train is blocking a major intersection in west Raleigh near the N.C. State Fairgrounds.
Raleigh police tweeted an alert Saturday morning about 9:15 saying a train was stopped and blocking Blue Ridge Road near Hillsborough Street. This is near Carter-Finley Stadium and will impact fans going to the NCSU-East Carolina football game at noon. It may take until 1 p.m. before the train can be moved.
Police say a “kill” switch automatically stopped the train as it was passing through the intersection.
Authorities are asking people going to the game to use an alternate route.
