ELGIN, NV (KOLO) - The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says the southeast Nevada county road from Elgin to Carp is closed until at least Thursday, and then it will remain partially closed for the next 7-10 days.

The closure is because of a train derailment July 10, 2019. There are construction equipment, train cars, and debris blocking the road. Union Pacific Railroad is working to get the area cleaned up and the road back open.

There are no reports of injuries, and the cause of the derailment has not been determined.
