OMAHA, Neb. — Union Pacific will invest $41 million in its Wyoming infrastructure this year to maintain railroad rights-of-way and improve bridges and other structures.

Key projects include a $10 million investment in its rail line from Goshen, Wyo., to Niobara, Wyo., to replace almost 69,000 concrete crossties and install nearly 22,000 tons of rock ballast. The railroad will make a similar investment of $7 million to replace crossties and install new ballast on its rail line between Wamsutter, Wyo., and Rock Springs, Wyo., on the original UP main line.

This year’s $41 million capital expenditure is part of $3.1 billion that UP will spend across its entire network this year.
