Union Pacific doing railroad work in Sheboygan County

by

SHEBOYGAN COUNTY, WI (WHBL) - You might have noticed some work being done on some of the existing railroad lines in Sheboygan County recently.  That's because Union Pacific, which owns some of the lines in the county, is currently updating some of their 32,000 miles of track across the country.

In Southeast Wisconsin they plan to replace 26 miles of rail, fix surfaces at 62 road crossings, and replace seven switches.  The cost of this work is $6.1 million, which is all covered by the railroad company.  The goal of the work is to improve train operating efficiency, reduce motorist wait time at crossings, and enhance safety.
