Fiber Optics and Telecommunication

"Call Before You Dig!" Operations (CBUD)


The Commercial Telecom team has operated its own "Call Before You Dig!" operation as a means to further ensure that our rights of way are protected and secure for the placement and continued operation of the many telecom facilities that occupy railroad corridors. This operation allows Railroad personnel, and others who are applying for permits within the Railroad’s rights of way to contact the one-call center prior to digging, disrupting, or working on UPRR property and to provide ample time for the railroad and various telecommunication customers to locate and protect their facilities.

For 24/7 support of all requests for fiber optic locates along UPRR rights of way:
