UP budgets $49 million for Missouri rail improvements


Union Pacific Railroad yesterday outlined a plan to invest $49 million in its Missouri infrastructure this year.

The Class I expects to spend $43 million for track maintenance and $3 million for bridge maintenance in the state, UP officials said in a press release.

One key project involves replacing 92,174 ties and installing 34,481 tons of ballast on the rail line between Labadie and Chamois. That work is slated to cost $12 million.

Another critical project calls for replacing 57,489 ties and installing 42,462 tons of ballast on track between Mineral Point and Annapolis.

The planned projects in Missouri are the latest to be unveiled as part of UP's state-by-state capex announcements.
