LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Two derailed train cars have been up righted  after derailing.

None of the dangerous chemicals have leaked from those cars at the site near Dixie Highway and Katherine Station Road.

Now that the cars carrying hydrogen fluoride are standing again the next step is to repair the tracks leading up to the derailment site.

Sometime between now and six tomorrow morning, Dixie Highway will be open for all traffic near the derailment site.  

P&L has opened a second outreach center located at Music Ranch USA on South Street in West Point where all claims, other than excess mileage due to the Dixie Highway closure, will be handled.

For mileage claims go to the Outreach Center at VFW Post 1181 on Blevins Gap Road in Louisville or call 1-800-786-5204.
