Bridal Veil Intermodal Facility Temporary Closure

BNSF will begin a major construction project at the Bridal Veil Intermodal Facility in St. Paul, MN, on Friday, October 8, 2010. The project will consist of regrading the lot and the installation of asphalt millings to create a more permanent surface. At the end of the project, the facility will consist of a flat and uniform asphalt surface, additional drainage to handle water runoff and a reconfigured checkpoint that will allow for an additional in-gate lane during peak hours. The project is expected to last until Monday, October 25.

During construction, the Bridal Veil facility will be temporarily closed to all traffic from 7:00 p.m. Friday, October 8, through 6:00 a.m. Tuesday, October 12. Drivers and vehicles will be unable to gain access to the facility.

During the times listed above, all traffic destined to the Bridal Veil facility at 1053 Westgate Drive must be diverted to the St. Paul Intermodal Facility at 1701 Pierce Butler Route, St. Paul, MN. All units available for customer pickup from Bridal Veil must also be pulled from the facility before closure, or risk not having access to these units during the closure.

The Bridal Veil Intermodal Facility will resume normal operations on Tuesday, October 12, at 6:00 a.m. At that time, only containers with the destination of Seattle International Gateway (SIG) will divert back to the Bridal Veil facility. All Los Angeles, CA, (LAC) traffic will remain at the St. Paul facility until the project’s completion.

We apologize for any inconvenience this project may cause. If you have any questions, please contact the BNSF St. Paul Intermodal Facility at 651-298-7021.
