MUKILTEO, Wash. -- BNSF Railway says a mudslide Thursday afternoon has closed its railroad tracks just south of Mukilteo.
Spokesman Gus Melonas says passenger rail service has been suspended for 48 hours following a slide that covered the tracks with mud and debris at about 2 p.m.
He says crews are working to open the line to freight service.
Melonas says it's the third slide of the season in this area. The mudslide occurred about a mile north of where the railway made major engineering improvements last year.
