BNSF will invest $335 million to upgrade rail infrastructure in Montana and North Dakota. Work to maintain track and expand capacity in Montana will get $115 million, while three new sidings in North Dakota will get part of the $220 million the Class I plans to invest there. "BNSF's capital investments in North Dakota and Montana will help ensure our network is prepared for growing demand for freight rail," said BNSF Chairman and CEO Matt Rose. "Unlike other modes of transportation, U.S. freight railroads use their own private dollars, not tax dollars, to build and maintain their freight rail networks."
