Continued expansion at the Tower 55 site in Fort Worth and other improvement projects are part of BNSF Railway Company’s $199-million maintenance and expansion plan in Texas this year.

The plan includes expansion of rail capacity at Tower 55, the realignment of its mainline for the extension of the Alliance Airport runway just north of Fort Worth, replacement of the Galveston Causeway Bridge, installation of wheel detectors in Galveston, improvements to BNSF's Amarillo car shop, as well as significant signal upgrades for federally mandated positive train control.

The company’s track maintenance program in the state will include 1,341 miles of track surfacing and undercutting work, and the replacement of 84 miles of rail and about 563,000 ties.
