GULFPORT, Miss. (WLOX) - Gulfport Police had to call in a tow truck Monday morning to move a semi off the tracks. It happened at Gulf Ave. and E. Railroad St.

A CSX train was also stopped on the tracks waiting for the truck to move, so other intersections all the way to Hwy 49 were blocked because of that.

Railroad crossings across the coast have been a source of frustration for drivers the last few weeks as CSX has been closing intersections for maintenance work. Those crews have been working quickly as they move from east to west across the coast.

Also in Harrison County, a crash on Hwy 49 between 16th Ave. and 14th St. has northbound traffic delayed.
