BNSF to improve and expand rail capacity in Illinois

BNSF Railway Company (BNSF), one of North America's leading freight transportation companies, plans to invest an estimated USD 145 million in maintenance and rail capacity expansion projects in Illinois this year. BNSF will replace two bridges in Princeton and Wyanet and construct a new siding between Barstow and Hillsdale. Three departure tracks at the Galesburg Yard will be extended.

BNSF will also continue its robust maintenance program in Illinois, which will include about 2,700 miles of track surfacing and undercutting work, and the replacement of 90 miles of rail and more than 150,000 railroad ties, as well as signal upgrades for federally mandated positive train control.
