BNSF is closely monitoring the water levels surrounding the Dayton's Bluff Automotive Facility in Saint Paul, Minn., and as a precaution has created a flood action plan with the safety of your products in mind. Water levels currently stand at 6.36 ft., and the National Weather Service currently predicts that water levels will reach 16.5 ft. by 10 a.m. on the morning of Tuesday, March 26. With the potential for flooding from the Mississippi River to enter our expansion lot (zones A1-A6) as water levels approach 14 ft., we ask that you increase outgate/haulaway activity as soon as possible to help lower inventory levels. This will enable us to move any remaining vehicles from the expansion lot to the main lot, thereby reducing exposure to flood damage and allowing for a quicker return to normal operations once the threat of flooding has passed.
With this in mind, we will provide you with any necessary updates throughout the coming days.
If you have any questions regarding your shipment(s), please contact your BNSF sales representative or BNSF Customer Support at 1-888-428-2673.
Thank you for your cooperation and collaboration.
