A train in New Iberia blocked several railroad crossings throughout the city on Tuesday.

That is no longer the case, according to New Iberia Police on Wednesday.

Now, the crossings are open, and the train is no longer blocking any railroad crossings.

New Iberia Police said Tuesday that a train was having mechanical issues.

Motorists were asked to avoid the railroad crossings from Lewis Street to Corrine Street and were informed to use alternate routes.

Getting around New Iberia's railroad tracks should be a bit easier on Wednesday.
