BNSF plans to invest an estimated $111 million on maintenance and rail capacity improvement projects in Montana this year.

BNSF will continue its track maintenance program in Montana, which will include 956 miles of track surfacing and undercutting work, the replacement of 54 miles of rail and about 210,000 crossties, as well as significant signal upgrades for federally-mandated positive train control.

"BNSF's investments will improve our ability to provide rail freight services to Montana businesses and communities and will expand opportunities to create more jobs and growth for the Montana economy," said Matthew Rose, chairman and chief executive officer.
