Winter Storm Impacting Operations
Announcement Number: CN2022-3
Categories: General Announcements
Posted Date: February 3, 2022
To Our Customers,
A major winter storm continues to impact our network with heavy snow, sleet and freezing rain. Over the next 24 hours, additional icing is expected over parts of Arkansas and Texas east of Waco. Additional snow accumulation is expected over Southern Illinois, Eastern Missouri and parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas.
The heavy snow, freezing rain and sleet are resulting in frozen switches and challenging yard and through freight conditions. Additionally, road and interstate closures are impacting our ability to transport crews to operate trains. Customers with shipments moving through the impacted states should anticipate delays between 24 to 48 hours.
Our 24-hour Weather Command Center is addressing service interruptions as quickly and safely as possible. We have additional resources positioned to aid in the recovery as needed. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
