Union Pacific to make infrastructure improvements in Kansas

(Source: Union Pacific press release, July 28, 2014)

OMAHA, Neb. — Union Pacific Railroad will strengthen Kansas' transportation infrastructure by investing $8 million in the rail line between Herington and Whitewater, Kansas. The project, funded entirely by Union Pacific without taxpayer dollars, began July 16 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of September.

The railroad will replace 52,000 ties, install 25,000 tons of rock ballast and renew the surfaces at 67 road crossings. The project is one of nearly 1,500 that Union Pacific will complete across its 32,000-mile network this year to help improve train operating efficiency, reduce motorist wait times at crossings and enhance safety.
