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.
