Canadian National has announced it plans to invest approximately $30 million in Tennessee in 2022.

This includes investments in technology, rolling stock units, and company-wide decarbonization initiatives, as well as network improvements. These investments will power sustainable growth and ensure the continued safe movement of goods in Tennessee and everywhere on CN’s transcontinental network.

“We continue to make significant investments in our network, technology, and capacity,” said Sean Finn, executive vice president, Corporate Services, and Chief Legal Officer at Canadian National. “We are building the premier railroad of the 21st century to do even more for our customers, railroaders, shareholders, and the communities in which we operate.”

“Memphis is central to everything and at the heart of the logistics and distribution industry,” said Jim Strickland, mayor of Memphis, Tenn. “As a valued partner, we count on CN to reliably transport goods and provide services that our city, state, and country need.”

Maintenance program highlights include:

  • Installing approximately 38,000 new railroad ties;
  • Rebuilding 16 road crossing surfaces; and
  • Maintenance work on bridges, culverts, signal systems, and other track infrastructure.
