BNSF Flood Advisory: Thursday 4:00 p.m. Update

Repair work is under way, but a full assessment of damage and required repairs depends on the speed with which the waters recede and whether additional rain develops in the area. Our current expectation is that we will be able to restore service over at least one of the two main tracks late Friday, June 27.
BNSF is making use of its limited options to re-route traffic around the affected area, but shipments over our Chicago-Kansas City route may be delayed at least 48 hours.
