BNSF plans to invest an estimated $30 million on maintenance and rail capacity improvement projects in South Dakota this year.

BNSF’s 2012 capacity enhancement projects in South Dakota include expansion of rail sidings to increase rail capacity, as well as signal upgrades.

BNSF will also continue its maintenance program in South Dakota, which will include 676 miles of track surfacing and undercutting work and the replacement of 28 miles of rail and about 121,000 crossties.

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