Union Pacific Invests $450 Million in Texas Railroad Infrastructure

Texas transportation infrastructure is getting a $450 million boost, thanks to Union Pacific, according to a recent press release. The private investment will go towards the building of its customer service, enhanced safety, and operating efficiencies.

The investment also covers a range of initiatives, including $320 million to maintain railroad track, $94 million to maintain bridges, a $17 million investment in the rail line between Ranger and Sweetwater, and a $14 million investment in the rail line between Raymondville and Robstown.
