Published on : Saturday, November 12, 2016

Union Pacific RailroadRecent track upgrades meeting or exceeding all applicable Federal Railroad Administration standards will allow Union Pacific Railroad to increase train speed from 40 mph to 60 mph on approximately 4 miles of rail line between Plaza Parkway and River Road in Modesto, California.

 

Increased train speeds typically reduce motorist wait time at crossings and help Union Pacific more efficiently deliver the goods American businesses and families use daily.

 

Train speeds will increase beginning Nov. 15. Union Pacific invested $11.7 million for Modesto-area track improvements over the past 10 years.

 

Union Pacific plans to invest $121.6 million in 2016 to improve California’s transportation infrastructure. The investment covers a range of initiatives, including $104 million to maintain railroad track in the state.
