Union Pacific is enhancing Iowa's transportation infrastructure by investing nearly $14 million in the rail line that runs between Grand Mound and Boone. The project is in progress and is scheduled to be completed by mid November.

The project includes replacing nearly 80,000 crossties, spreading 44,800 tons of ballast, renewing the surfaces at 84 crossings and replacing a total of two and one-half miles of rail in various curves.
