OMAHA, Neb. — Plagued with weather-caused outages since mid-March, BNSF Railway reports all service is restored.

Operations were slated to resume over the July 20 to 21 weekend on the 80-mile Napier Subdivision, along the Missouri River from near Omaha to near St. Joseph, Mo.

It was BNSF’s hardest hit section of flooding.

“Extensive restoration efforts have been ongoing throughout much of the past four months as crews have addressed dozens of washouts, repaired several miles of track, and constructed a new 3-thousand-foot causeway near Bartlett, Iowa, to support our main line,” railroad officials say.

Service on the River Subdivision, along the Mississippi River south of St. Louis, resumed the weekend of July 13 to 14, although conditions of receding water imposed some speed restrictions.
