Burlington Northern will be based in Edmonds while making repairs to rock seawalls

The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad will be making repairs to the rock seawalls and track embankments from Seattle’s Carkeek Park to Everett. Their base of operations will be near Port of Edmonds at the rail house on West Dayton Street.

This project will repair defects in the existing rock seawalls and embankments by filling existing void spaces with grout. All repairs will be made by track-based equipment with a boat acting as a spotter to identify the next repair location.

The schedule for these repair efforts is weather-dependent but expected to continue through the summer. The contractor for BNSF, Advanced American Construction, will provide updates during the project and the City of Edmonds said it will continue to pass that information on via local news sources.

This work will start in Seattle and work northward. It is not expected to be in the Edmonds area for several weeks.
