Flood Repair Causes Change to Amtrak's Missouri River Runner

Warrensburg, MO - Some passengers on Amtrak's Missouri River Runner will travel via highway instead of rail this week as work continues to restore a section of railroad track east of Warrensburg, Mo.

Recent flash flooding caused some damage to the track. Union Pacific has planned additional maintenance and repair on the rail line that will require afternoon closures on April 8 through April 11.

All morning train service (#311 and #314) for the Missouri River Runner is expected to run on regular schedules. Passengers on the afternoon trains (#313 and #316) will be rerouted to buses to get to their destinations. Passengers with tickets for the afternoon trains should report to the train stations at their scheduled times.

Amtrak will resume full rail service for the Missouri River Runner once repairs are complete. Travelers are encouraged to check Amtrak.com or call 1-800-USA-RAIL (800-872-7245) to get up-to-date information on departure/arrival times.

Twice a day the Missouri River Runner serves Kansas City, St. Louis and eight points in between - Kirkwood, Washington, Hermann, Jefferson City, Sedalia, Warrensburg, Lee's Summit and Independence.
