Service Interruption on the Fallbridge Subdivision in Washington

BNSF is currently experiencing an operational impact due to numerous downed trees along a portion of our Fallbridge Subdivision, which runs between Pasco and Vancouver, Washington. Significant freezing rain in this area is causing heavy ice buildup on trees as well as road closures affecting crew transportation. This location impacts traffic to and from facilities in the Seattle and Portland areas. The estimated time for opening for the main tracks has not been determined.

While we have implemented procedures to re-route some trains, customers may experience delays on shipments moving through this corridor. BNSF will continue to provide additional information as it becomes available.

If you have questions regarding your shipment(s), please contact BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673 (select option 4, then option 3). We will continue to provide customers with further updates on any significant service interruptions.
