(KWES) - A railroad derailment forced the closure of Interstate 10 in Kent, just west of the I-10 and I-20 split earlier in the day.

According to the Culberson County Sheriff, the interstate is now reopened and clean-up is underway, but there is a possibility it will close again.

The closure was for safety purposes and traffic is being rerouted to Highway 67 and Highway 90.
