BNSF Replacing Railroad Ties In Yankton Region

Materials are staged along the BNSF right-of-way in Yankton as the railroad tackles a tie replacement project. Nearly 51,000 ties will be replaced this fall between Vermillion and Tripp over 75 track miles.

It’s hard not to notice a little more activity these days along the railroad through Yankton.

Ties and other equipment have been set out along the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway’s (BNSF) right-of-way through Yankton and for miles around as the railroad takes on a routine infrastructure project.
