Severe Weather in the Midwest

BNSF personnel and local Corp of Engineers have been monitoring the rising water in the Iowa and Nebraska areas.

Due to current and forecasted rising water conditions, we have begun, and will continue, to reroute certain trains moving through these areas. For intermodal traffic, this will affect the Chicago-Denver (eastbound and westbound) trains. The carload plan for traffic departing Galesburg, IL is being developed at this time.

We will continue to provide you with additional information as it becomes available.

Customers may experience delays of 24 to 36 hours on shipments moving through these corridors.

If you have any questions, please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673, option 4, option 3.
