CN investing more than $16 million to expand and strengthen Kentucky’s rail infrastructure in 2019
CN said today it plans to invest more than $16 million in Kentucky in 2019 to strengthen the Company’s rail network across the state.
“Following a record capital program in 2018, CN has been able to take on more traffic from different commodity sectors based on contracts with our customers,” said Derek Taylor, Vice-President of CN’s Southern Region. “This year, we are continuing to invest to boost capacity and network resiliency and to meet growing traffic on our corridors across Kentucky.”
The Kentucky investments are part of CN’s 2019 record US$2.9-billion capital investment focused on enabling growth from all commodity segments, including consumer goods, grain, agricultural, forest, and energy products from all of our customers, safely and efficiently. Over two years, CN will have made a US$5.7-billion capital investment.
