UP to bolster track on Arizona line


Union Pacific Railroad plans to spend $6.9 million to upgrade a 30-mile line between Yuma and Welton, Ariz.

The project calls for removing and installing new rail and more than 47,000 ties, and spreading 18,000 tons of ballast.

The trackwork is part of UP’s $3.2 billion capital spending budget for 2011.
