Winter Weather Rail Operations Update

Announcement Number: CN2014-11
Categories: All Customer News
Posted Date: March 3, 2014

To Our Customers,

Ice storms across portions of Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas have affected rail operations in these areas. Fallen trees and power lines are being cleared from our right of way, and snow and ice are being cleared from switches. Additionally, road conditions are hampering our ability to get crews to trains. The worst impact has been felt in Arkansas, and we anticipate 24- to 48-hour delays for traffic moving through our North Little Rock and Pine Bluff terminals.

The northern tier of our network continues to be impacted by weather conditions and congestion. We will continue to take all safe and necessary measures to improve throughput

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