Posted Date: December 22, 2021

To Our Customers,

Union Pacific is continuing the transformation of our Houston Englewood Yard into a premier rail car processing hub. The next phase of the yard transformation will include:

  • Implementation of a new signal system throughout the entire yard will occur January 9-13. Our operations team will have additional staffing on hand to mitigate delays during this project, customers should anticipate some transit delays due to the signal replacement process.
  • Tie and rail replacement phase will strengthen the underlying rail infrastructure — this project is scheduled from January 25th through late February.
  • In mid-March, the final phase of the software and hardware upgrades to the new hump computer system will begin, with implementation and testing occurring over a two-week period.

The upcoming improvements will support your current and future business needs in this dynamic growth area in our Southern Region. We remain focused on delivering your freight as quickly as possible. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
