Train Derailment

By: News Release
Jul 2nd, 2019

BNSF railroad has reported a train derailment 1/4 mile south of Glen Haven involving approximately 15 cars. There is no threat to public safety. US Fish and Wildlife and WI DNR are assessing environmental impact which appears to be minimal. Please avoid the area. You will not be able to see anything from Glen Haven and the Glen Haven boat landing is currently closed/inaccessible. The apparent cause was a rock/mudslide.

The Glen Haven boat landing, including the docks, will be closed until July 4th or until the train derailment is cleaned up. This means you will not be able to dock coming off the river and walk across the tracks. The goal is to have it open for the July 4th weekend.
This determination was made by the Glen Haven Township Board in conjunction with the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.
