BNSF Plans Upgrade

Posted: Updated:
BNSF Railway announced a $1 billion investment to upgrade rail capacity in its north corridor which includes Minnesota and North Dakota.

The plan includes more tracks next to the mainline to improve train traffic and passing along routes that run through Fargo, Grand Forks, Bismarck and Minot.

BNSF will also upgrade to a centralized traffic control system to improve train movements between Fargo and Bismarck. Shipments and travel by rail have been bogged down by delays across the area due to increased rail traffic from the oil boom.
