FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Train traffic along Colorado’s Front Range is expected to be up over the next five weeks because of track work in northeastern Colorado.

Fort Collins officials say they’ve been notified by BNSF Railway that another six to 10 trains a day could be passing through there and other communities on their way to pick up coal in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin. That could mean up to 16 trains a day will be running along line parallel to busy College Avenue.

The Coloradoan (https://noconow.co/1rETVDq) reports that the trains are being re-routed because of maintenance work near Sterling, Colorado.

BNSF spokesman Andy Williams said the railroad is trying to be sensitive to how many trains are re-routed. He says the number of trains will vary from day to day.
