Tower 55 Update

Announcement Number: IP2014-13
Categories: All Industrial Products
Posted Date: May 28, 2014

The $115 million upgrade for Tower 55 is progressing on-time and injury-free. Union Pacific is on schedule to complete a segment of on-track upgrades by the end of May. Off-track work will continue through June to support the overall project, with limited impact to rail operations. As we move into July, re-routes will return as on-track work intensifies. Track work is projected to continue through early September of this year.

Our re-route plans have been successful and have had limited impact on customers. We will continue to be intensely focused on the Tower 55 upgrade and are confident we have a solid plan in place to minimize impact to operations and our customers.

Located near Fort Worth, Texas, Tower 55 is an at-grade rail intersection where freight and passenger rail routes converge into two, north-south main lines — crossing two, east-west main lines.
