Winter Weather Delays - Illinois

Extreme winter weather conditions were experienced across the BNSF tracks in the state of Illinois between Thursday, November 30, 2006 and Friday, December 1, 2006, and had a negative impact on the normal flow of traffic throughout the state. Ice, heavy snow and wind all contributed to delay of traffic over this territory, which affected train movement, track and signal conditions.

All rail terminals and Intermodal Hub facilities remain open and operational, and conditions continue to improve.

Customers may experience delays between 8-16 hours on traffic in this region.
