Report: Soft Track Conditions in Minnesota and North Dakota

BNSF continues to experience soft track conditions along our KO Subdivision which runs between Dilworth, Minnesota and Surrey, North Dakota. The result is slow operating conditions and high maintenance activity across the subdivision.

To reduce traffic across the KO Subdivision, and to minimize the impact to our customers, reroutes have been established for International and Carload freight. The shipment transit times will be approximately 24 hours longer than the regularly scheduled route.

Intermodal Expedited traffic will continue to move across the KO Subdivision and could experience delays of 6-8 hours as a result of the slow operating conditions.

BNSF will continue to provide updates as conditions change. Please see for maps and additional information.

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