Forty cars of a Canadian National freight train derailed beneath the St. Clair River in the Port Huron-to-Sarnia tunnel early Friday morning, June 28th.  One of those cars leaked sulfuric acid, but authorities said there is no threat to the public.

It is expected to take several days to remove all the cars from inside the tunnel and to repair the tracks, which sustained significant damage.

Rail traffic through Michigan will be impacted as some trains are too tall to enter the tunnel that runs under the Detroit River, Port Huron City Manager, James Freed, told Crain's Detroit Business.  Some trains can be rerouted through Detroit, but others are being rerouted as far west as Chicago.

The St. Clair Tunnel, which has only a single lane of rail traffic, is a busy international trade corridor.  Some rail traffic passes through Durand on its way to Port Huron, and on its way from Port Huron to Chicago.
