Update Report: Flooding in North Dakota and Montana

BNSF continues to experience challenges related to flooding on our northern lines resulting in soft track conditions. These conditions require BNSF to perform daily track maintenance to maintain safe operations. Customers should anticipate slower than normal operating conditions. There are a few carload industries that may not receive service due to high waters. Reroutes will be established where possible.

Detailed information on the flooded areas impacting the Carload Network:
Grenora sub is out of service north of Stanley, North Dakota.
Choteau sub is out of service northwest of Power, Montana.

BNSF will continue to assess the situation daily and advise on those situations to help minimize impact to our customers.

We will continue to provide updates as conditions change. Please see for maps and additional information. If you have any questions, please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673 option 4, option 3.
