Yesterday, we reported that UP had experienced a service interruption on the Mexico Subdivision near Kansas City affecting KCS traffic to/from Kansas City and St Louis.
We are pleased to report that the line has reopened as of 4pm today, August 20th, 2019. As standard after any repair work, we will proceed cautiously as we monitor the maintenance performed. Please expect delays until the backlog has been alleviated and normal speeds can be resumed over the affected area.
We appreciate your patience and understanding on this service interruption and the resulting delays.
