KCS charts 2015 projects for Missouri rail line


Kansas City Southern Railway will spend $15.6 million this year on construction and improvement projects on its Pittsburg Subdivision line from Kansas City to Stotesbury, Mo., the railroad announced yesterday.

Projects include replacement of 1.75 miles of rail and 100,000 ties, as well as improvements to more than 90 grade crossings in Kansas City, Grandview, Cleveland, Drexel, Amsterdam Hume and Stotesbury, Mo.

The work is being done to increase capacity and improve safety on the network, KCS officials said in a press release. Construction will begin May 26 and wrap up in June.

"KCS, through its U.S. and Mexican subsidiaries, continues to invest in capital projects to expand network capacity, keep maintenance in a regular and healthy cycle, and enhance the safety of our operation," said Chief Executive Officer David Starling in a press release.
