Chicago Area
Water levels in the Chicago area continue to recede following widespread flooding last week. All Union Pacific terminals in the Chicago area remain open and truck access has been restored at Union Pacific's Global II (Northlake, Ill.) intermodal facility. Customers with shipments moving through the Chicago area may experience some delays as operations return to normal.

Near West, Texas
Crews have now finished track repairs along the Fort Worth subdivision, following last week's fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas (near Waco, Texas). Operations have returned to normal and trains will no longer be re-routed between San Antonio/Houston and Kansas City/North Platte.

If you have any questions please contact your Union Pacific representative.
