Update - Winter Weather Colorado

Approximately 1:00 p.m. CT Thursday, December 21, 2006 snow fall ceased in and around Denver, Colorado. The total accumulation in the metro Denver, CO area is near 30 inches. And combined with high winds it has caused a major interruption to railroad operations throughout the state of Colorado.

The Denver Intermodal Facility which closed at 9:00 p.m. CT Wednesday, December 20, 2006, is estimated to reopen at 6:00 p.m. CT Thursday, December 21, 2006. Crews continue removing snow in the Denver Yard to allow switching operations to begin. Weather conditions are expected to improve by Friday, December 22, 2006, but recovery will be slow as most side streets remain impassable. BNSF will continue to monitor the situation closely and advise as conditions improve.

Customers should anticipate delays between 24 and 72 hours on traffic moving through this region.
