UP budgets $9.1 million for Wisconsin line improvements


Union Pacific Railroad plans to spend $9.1 million this year to upgrade track between Adams and Lebanon, Wis.

Just under way and scheduled for completion in late October, the project calls for removing and installing 77,000 ties, spreading 30,000 tons of rock ballast and replacing road surfaces at 41 grade crossings.

The project is part of UP's $3.1 billion capital-ex budget in 2008 that includes $1.6 billion for track improvement system-wide. Since 2003, the Class I has spent $73.4 million on capital projects in Wisconsin, including $5 million last year.
