  • GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Westbound passengers on Amtrak's Empire Builder line at Grand Forks, Devils Lake and Rugby will have to complete part their trip by bus for the next four months as the tracks will undergo repairs.
    Amtrak is suspending railway service to those cities while BNSF Railway Co. conducts the repairs. Amtrak uses BNSF track. The disruptions will last through Sept. 30.
    Joe Boardman is Amtrak's president and CEO. He will visit the affected area this week to discuss the delays with North Dakota leaders.
    BNSF is investing $400 million in infrastructure in the state. The company says the detour will allow crews to speed up the repairs between Fargo and Minot.
    Eastbound traffic will maintain its usual route along the state's northern tier.
