Service Interruptions Impacting Operations

Announcement Number: CN2022-14
Categories: General Announcements
Posted Date: April 6, 2022

To Our Customers,

 Our network is currently impacted at the following locations:

  • A service interruption just west of Clinton, Iowa, is impacting operations between Chicago and Boone, Iowa. A limited route is available to move shipments around the impacted area. Customers with rail shipments moving through the impacted area should anticipate a minimum of 24 hours of delay.
  • One of our bridges between El Paso and San Antonio sustained significant structural damage due to a fire. Our Engineering teams are working to repair damage to the bridge and restore service to the area. A reroute plan is in place to move shipments around the impacted area. As a result of the alternate routing, customers should anticipate between 24 and 48 hours of additional transit time.

We appreciate your patience as we safely work to restore service to these areas. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
