Update Report: Track Washouts in North Dakota

As reported in a Service Advisory on Wednesday, April 15, 2009, BNSF experienced flooding and track outages in North Dakota.

The KO Subdivision and Jamestown Subdivision were returned to service and all trains through these corridors are operating over normal routes. The KO Subdivision is between Fargo, North Dakota and Minot, North Dakota. The Jamestown Subdivision runs between Fargo, North Dakota and Bismarck, North Dakota.

The Devils Lake Subdivision remains out of service due to a bridge being taken out of service approximately 15 miles east of Minot, North Dakota. BNSF is routing trains around the impacted area where alternate routes exist. We will continue to monitor this situation and advise as conditions improve. The Devils Lake Subdivision is between Grand Forks, North Dakota and Minot, North Dakota. Customers may experience delays of 24 to 36 hours on traffic in this area as a result of this outage.
