UP opens new yard office in Iowa


Yesterday, Union Pacific Railroad opened a $2.4 million office building in Des Moines, Iowa, that replaces several outdated buildings the Class I had been using as offices.

Construction on the more than 11,600-square-foot structure, which houses 150 UP employees, began June 7 and was completed Dec. 15. The building is located at UP’s yard off East Market Street.

Since 2006, the Class I has invested more than $1 billion in Iowa in branch line upgrades, east-west corridor capacity improvements, ethanol- and grain-related projects, communication and signal improvements, wind turbine projects, a new double-track bridge near Boone and other major work.
