Public Projects and Public Infrastructure and Investments

BNSF’s Public Projects and Public Infrastructure and Investments teams collaborate with communities to help secure funding to drive positive change and progress for infrastructure projects that cross, intersect or parallel BNSF’s network.

For over 170 years, BNSF has safely and efficiently met our customers' expectations by transporting goods by rail over 32,500 miles of our network through 28 states and two Canadian provinces. Collaborating with public agency partners offers the opportunity to support infrastructure projects that cross, intersect, or parallel BNSF's network and presents an opportunity to maximize the impacts of investments. Our teams' efforts in building and maintaining strong, long-lasting partnerships with public agencies represent a shared commitment to safety, infrastructure development, and prosperity in the communities where BNSF operates.

We welcome the opportunity to work with our local communities and public agency partners to execute projects that unlock new opportunities to achieve shared goals.
