Independence Day Holiday Operating Plan

Announcement Number: CN2014-18
Categories: All Customer News
Posted Date: June 20, 2014

Union Pacific's network will operate at normal levels during the Independence Day holiday weekend. This includes operations on Friday, July 4, 2014 through Sunday, July 6, 2014.

During this time, we will operate manifest, perishables, coal, soda ash and potash, grain, military, rock and crude oil trains. The intermodal and automotive network may have selected annulments depending on volumes.

Trains enroute will operate to destination. Some yard and local operations may be curtailed based on traffic levels and customer needs. Critical customer-specific switching requests will be protected. Interchange operations will be coordinated as required with connecting railroads at all locations.

If your facility requires service during the holiday, please open a Service Issue on our website prior to close of business on Friday, June 27, 2014. You may also contact Customer Service at 1-800-272-8777 to have them open a Service Issue on your behalf. Feedback will be provided regarding the availability of service over the Independence Day holiday.

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