The Surface Transportation
Board today completed its work in the multiparty effort to preserve freight
train service in northern Maine.
Secretary Ray LaHood said that a final agreement has been signed for a $33.8-million
Recovery Act-funded project that will upgrade a train crossing and eliminate
delays in the San Bernardino, Calif., area. As a result, work can now begin on
the project, which will elevate two Union Pacific tracks over two BNSF main line
tracks in Colton.
