Train Traffic Paused at Eagle Pass Interchange

Announcement Number: CN2023-54
Categories: General Announcements
Posted Date: September 20, 2023

To Our Customers,

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Agency closed train traffic at Eagle Pass Wednesday, pausing rail cars. The closure is due to the migrant crisis on the Southern Border. Union Pacific’s other gateways cannot handle the extra traffic and we are notifying our customers of an embargo at Eagle Pass, effective immediately. This will help us better manage your shipments during this dynamic and rapidly developing situation.

We remain in communication with CBP and will continue normal operations at our other gateways.

If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
