UP opens Salt Lake City intermodal terminal


Yesterday, Union Pacific Railroad opened an $83 million, 260-acre intermodal terminal in Salt Lake City.

Designed to handle 250,000 trailers or containers annually, the facility triples the railroad’s international and domestic container capacity in the area. The terminal features one receiving and departure track, four unloading tracks, five staging tracks, more than 1,300 parking spaces and two Global Positioning System-equipped cranes.

Construction began in February and was completed in July. Located two miles south of Interstate 80, the terminal can be expanded if traffic demand increases, UP said.
