$10 Million Awarded to Help Raise Rail Line Near Devils Lake
North Dakota`s congressional delegation announced today that the U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded $10 million in federal resources to help upgrade the rail line near Devils Lake. These federal resources will be added to additional funding the congressional delegation worked to secure from Amtrak and Burlington Northern to help cover the cost for the project, which many deem critical to regional commerce.
Rising floodwaters in the Devils Lake basin have threatened the rail lines and bridges near Churchs Ferry, forcing Amtrak had to suspend service on its Empire Builder line earlier this year.
