SPRING, Texas — Union Pacific will invest $41 million in its Oklahoma rail infrastructure this year to replace crossties, ballast, and conduct other right-of-way improvements.

Specifically, the railroad will spend $8 million to replace more than 62,000 crossties and install more than 28,000 tons of rock ballast on its rail line from Parsons, Kan.,
to Big Cabin, Okla. The railroad will also spend an additional $7 million for similar upgrades on its rail line between the Arkansas and Oklahoma state line and Gore, Okla.

Since 2012, UP has spent more than $236 million on railroad improvements in the state of Oklahoma. This year, the railroad will spend $3.1 billion across its network on similar right-of-way improvements.
