UP to spend $5 million on infrastructure in Washington

Union Pacific Railroad has budgeted $5.1 million this year for infrastructure projects in the state of Washington.

Projects planned include $3.5 million to clean and replace ballast under the rail line along the Ayer Subdivision south of Hooper, and more than $500,000 to replace a section of curve rail on the line north of Wallula.

This year's planned capital expenditure in Washington is part of UP's ongoing investment strategy. From 2012 to 2016, the Class I spent more than $45 million strengthening Washington's transportation infrastructure.

UP has budgeted $3.1 billion on capital expenditures across its network this year.
