Trains will operate more
efficiently as a result of more than $26 million in track improvements made by
Union Pacific to its line between Schuyler, Neb., and Duncan, Neb. When the
project is complete, crews will have removed and replaced more than 77,000
concrete ties and 30 miles of rail, spread more than 100,000 tons of rock
ballast and replaced the road surfaces at 17 crossings. The project began
October 2 and is scheduled to be completed by mid November.
MTA NYC Transit said that
work on the Fulton Street Transit Center has entered the next phase with the
start of construction work on the AC mezzanine at Broadway-Nassau and the new
ADA accessible station entrance at William and Fulton Streets.
