BNSF Railway Co. of Fort Worth has agreed to temporarily accommodate additional Amtrak service between Seattle and Bellingham, Wash. to assist travelers following the recent collapse of the Interstate 5 Skagit Bridge.
Specific details of the additional service have not been determined, but BNSF has notified Amtrak and Washington state transportation officials that additional service can be added on a temporary basis.
“The bridge collapse has created a highly difficult and unusual situation for those having to travel the I-5 corridor and calls for extraordinary measures to temporarily add additional service,” said Mark Schulze, vice president of BNSF safety, training and operations support, commenting in a news release.
“We will do our best to accommodate the additional traffic, and we’re glad to do it,” Schulze said.
BNSF Railway is a North American freight transportation company operating on 32,500 route miles of track in 28 states and two Canadian provinces. More information is available at www.bnsf.com.
