Union Pacific Railroad is spending more than $29 million to upgrade a rail line between Grand Island and Havens, Neb.

Scheduled to be complete by the end of November, the project calls for replacing 88,400 concrete ties, installing more than 33 miles of new rail, spreading 115,500 tons of ballast, renewing surfaces at 16 road crossings and replacing six switches.

The Class I is investing $3.6 billion in its rail network this year, according to a press release.
