Union Pacific Railroad will continue improving the transportation infrastructure in Utah with an investment of more than $13 million to enhance the rail line that runs from Provo to Lynndyl. The more than 84-mile project includes removing and installing more than 106,000 ties, renewing the surfaces at 88 road crossings and replacing more than one mile of rail in various curves. Crews will also spread 72,000 tons of rock ballast to help provide a more stable roadbed.



$13 mil is really nothing more than routine track maintenance. Compare that to what's being spent on double tracking the Sunset route.
