Interchange Traffic Delays in Clinton, Iowa

Due to the floodgates being closed at Clinton, Iowa as of 07:37 a.m. April 18, 2011, normal interchange with the Union Pacific at Clinton, Iowa will cease. At this current time we do not have an estimate on when the floodgates will be reopened and track returned to service. Customers will see delays in shipments moving through this interchange between BNSF and the Union Pacific.

In order to help relieve congestion and improve fluidity of the carload network, BNSF is working with the Union Pacific to reroute Clinton, Iowa interchange traffic over Council Bluffs, Iowa.
