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 Tuesday, April 8 (today) through April 11.
 
Twice a day the Missouri River Runner serves Kansas City, St. Louis and eight points in between including Kirkwood, Washington, Hermann, and Jefferson City.
 
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 re-routed 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 to get up-to-date information on departure and arrival times.

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Springfield and Sangamon County officials have announced an agreement with the state on design work for consolidating train traffic through Illinois' capital city. The effort is part of high-speed rail development.

   The agreement made public Wednesday involves nearly $8.7 million to pay for half of the design work. The project would move rail traffic through the downtown core farther out to a corridor on the city's east side.

   The deal was signed by Illinois Department of Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider, Springfield Mayor Michael Houston and Sangamon County Board Chairman Andy Van Meter.

   The project is part of the Chicago-to-St. Louis high-speed rail development. There is no current funding for train traffic consolidation.

   The plan would include new track alignments and separating automobile and train traffic in spots.

Railroad officials say the man struck and killed by an Amtrak train in Pacific Wednesday night had been cutting across the tracks when the accident happened. Police say 20 year -old Zachary Brady was walking home from his job at a fast-food restaurant when Amtrak's Missouri River Runner train struck and killed him.

Police say this is the fourth serious accident along the Union Pacific line near the Fourth Street crossing in the last eight years -- two others were also fatal.

An Amtrak official told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that most accidents involving pedestrians could be avoided if people wouldn't trespass on railroad tracks. Trespasser fatalities have become the leading cause of railroad deaths.
