A barge in the Mississippi slammed into a BNSF bridge in Iowa on Thursday, shutting down the bridge. Unfortunately, this is the same bridge that the California Zephyr uses to cross the Mississippi! Consequently, the Zephyr had to take a very long reroute. Here, the westbound Zephyr is running nearly nine hours late as it heads west of Leyden in late afternoon light.
