Northern California Bridge Outage Update
Announcement Number: CN2021-44
Categories: General Announcements
Posted Date: July 9, 2021
To Our Customers,
Due to the recent forest fires in northern California, our Dry Canyon bridge north of Redding, California, sustained significant structural damage. Our Engineering and Operating teams have been working around the clock to restore service to the bridge. Current estimates have the bridge reopening by September 1.
A reroute plan is in place to move shipments around the impacted area. As a result of the alternate routing, customers should anticipate between 48 and 72 hours of additional transit time.
We appreciate your patience as we safely work to restore service to this critical area. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
