Intermittent roadway closures will be required on Shoulders Hill Road over the next several days to clean up a train derailment that happened Monday.

Commonwealth Railway says it will need to close Shoulders Hill Road several times to move equipment in for the clean-up efforts, according to a city press release. Closures will vary in duration but should not exceed an hour each.

Traffic will be re-routed through the Suffolk Meadows neighborhood during these closures, the press release stated. Shoulders Hill Road will be kept open as much as possible to reduce the impact to the neighborhood.

“Commuters should expect delays, and it is suggested that they seek alternative routes for the next two days,” the press release stated.
