Union Pacific to make Illinois infrastructure improvements

(Source: Union Pacific Railroad press release, October 11, 2012)

OMAHA, Neb. Union Pacific Railroad is enhancing Illinois' transportation infrastructure by investing nearly $8 million in the rail line that runs between Villa Grove and Findlay. The project is in progress and is scheduled to be completed by the end of November. This work is in addition to the project Union Pacific is doing in 2012 on the Illinois Department of Transportation's High Speed Rail corridor between Chicago and St. Louis. The 41-mile project includes replacing 51,300 ties, installing more than a half mile of rail in various curves, spreading 13,395 tons of rock ballast to help provide a more stable roadbed and renewing the surfaces at 86 road crossings.
