Increased rail traffic caused by freight trains being diverted to the Union Pacific Railroad route between St. Louis and Kansas City has led to a temporary suspension of Amtrak Missouri River Runner service in this corridor.

The additional freight train volume is due to historic flooding in the Central U.S.
