UP performing trackwork in Colorado

Written by Jenifer Nunez, assistant editor

Union Pacific plans to strengthen Colorado's transportation infrastructure by investing $6.5 million in the rail line between Boyero and Limon. The project, funded entirely by Union Pacific, began November 21 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of December.


The railroad will install 31 miles of rail, replace six switches and renew the surfaces at 21 road crossings. The project is one of nearly 1,500 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.
