Heavy Rainfall Impacts Operations to and from Minneapolis/St. Paul

Announcement Number: CN2012-15
Categories: General Announcements
Posted Date: May 9, 2012

To Our Customers,

Heavy rainfall earlier this week has resulted in damage and unstable track conditions on Union Pacific's main line south of Valley Park, Minn. along the Minnesota River. Crews are positioning ballast and additional equipment to make repairs to track infrastructure along the affected areas.

Trains in the western and southern portions of our system moving to and from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area are currently being rerouted, and customers with shipments moving in those corridors should anticipate 24- to 36-hour delays as crews make track repairs and operations return to normal.

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