Union Pacific Railroad will continue improving the transportation infrastructure in Iowa by investing nearly $10.5 million in the rail line that runs from Des Moines to Iowa Falls. Various projects over the almost 65 miles of the line include removing and installing 52,500 ties, replacing more than two miles of rail in various curves, as well as renewing the surfaces at 91 road crossings. Crews will also spread nearly 22,000 tons of rock ballast to help provide a more stable roadbed and weld together the sections of rail – providing a smoother ride for trains.
