EAST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) - The BNSF Railway plans to spend $180 million to expand capacity and maintain its tracks in Montana.

The railway says it is part of a plan to increase safety and reliability.

The upgrades call for improvements to rails, rail ties and track supports.

The maintenance program will include 950 miles of track surfacing, replacing approximately 120 miles of rail and fixing more than 285,000 ties.
