Memphis to Los Angeles and Stockton Cutoff Change Effective August 8

Unexpected weather events on the BNSF network have necessitated changes to our maintenance plans to keep the network fluid for our customers. BNSF will now be conducting rail and tie maintenance between Springfield, MO, and Thayer, MO, from Monday, August 8, 2011, through Wednesday, September 28, 2011. To accommodate traffic moving through the area during that time, cutoff time for all Intermodal trailers and containers moving from Memphis, TN, to Los Angeles and Stockton, CA, will change.
