BNSF in Minnesota

BNSF Railway invests in our infrastructure in Minnesota to keep it sound and safe – and we are planning another $90 million of investments in 2018. To do this, we also leverage multiple layers of technology to enhance safety. To see how the use of safety technology and big data work together, consider the 240-mile Staples Subdivision, our main route in the state.
