KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Southern is set to invest approximately $24.6 million dollars in 2017 to improve subdivisions in Louisiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas.

“KCS, through its U.S. and Mexican subsidiaries, continues to invest in capital projects to expand network capacity, keep maintenance in a regular and healthy cycle, and enhance the safety of our operation,” KCS’ president and chief executive officer Patrick J. Ottensmeyer says in a news release.

The majority of the work will be performed on KCS’ Pittsburg, Heavener, and Shreveport subdivisions. The money will also fund replacement and improvement of rails, crossties, and grade crossings between Neosho, Mo., and Blanchard, La.

KCS says the work will begin on May 30 and will continue through August 2017. Together, the work will include the replacement of almost 8 miles of tracks and 90,000 crossties, and upgrades to more than 130 grade crossings.
