Redding Police Department is reporting a train is blocking all downtown traffic in Redding Friday evening after Union Pacific, the operator of the train, said one of their locomotives is suffering from mechanical issues.

Officials with Union Pacific estimate it'll take several hours to get the train up and running again.

Motorists are advised to avoid California and Tehama streets, using Railroad Avenue or Eureka Way to cross over.
