Trains Carrying North Dakota Crude Oil No Longer Passing Through Twin Cities
Minneapolis, MN (Learfield) -- State and local officials kept their fingers crossed while trains carrying crude oil from the North Dakota fields passed through downtown Minneapolis this summer.
B-N-S-F Railway says those trains are back on their usual routes now. The railroad was working on a 326 million dollar system upgrade. The oil train traffic on the downtown tracks slowed down in October and involves no more than three trains-a-week now.
No incidents were reported while the volatile cargo passed through the heavily-populated area.
