HERMISTON — Drivers can expect further delays on Highway 730 about three miles south of the Oregon-Washington state line as crews continue to repair the adjacent railroad track following last week’s train derailment.

Thirteen empty train cars derailed early Aug. 1, five of which slid into the Columbia River. Nothing was spilled and the cars have since been removed. Union Pacific officials continue to investigate what caused the wreck.
