BNSF plans to invest over $250 million on building projects in Washington and Oregon this year. A new siding project near Pasco and a multiyear double tracking project near Spokane, which will include new construction over the Spokane River, are both in BNSF’s $3.96 billion capital investment plan for 2023, which covers our entire 28-state network.

BNSF President and CEO Katie Farmer said: “Our capital plan reflects our growth mindset and commitment to having the capacity and equipment we need to support our customers. Continued investment in our network through our capital plans helps ensure we run a safe, efficient, and growing railroad that provides customers with the service they expect from BNSF.”
