Krotz Springs, Louisiana Bridge Update
Announcement Number: CN2017-42
Categories: General Announcements
Posted Date: June 28, 2017
To Our Customers,
The Union Pacific bridge in Krotz Springs, Louisiana, which is currently out of service due to damage caused by a barge, is expected to be repaired near the end of July. We have analyzed the structural damage of the bridge and identified the most effective design plan to replace the damaged pier and this week we will begin the implementation stage of repairs.
Customers will continue to experience delays of up to 48 hours while we reroute our traffic around the bridge location. Once repairs are complete we will resume our normal operations between Kinder and Livonia, Louisiana.
Thank you for your business. Please contact the National Customer Service Center or your Union Pacific representative with any questions.
