ROSEVILLE, Calif. — Union Pacific maintenance crews will spend $5.1 million in Washington State this year on railroad maintenance programs. Specifically, the railroad will spend $3.5 million along the Ayer Subdivision south of Hooper, Wash., on an infrastructure project to clean and replace railroad ballast.

Separately, maintenance workers will spend about $500,000 on its rail line north of Wallula, Wash., to replace a section of curved rail.

Since 2012, UP has spent more than $45 million on its Washington State rail infrastructure. This year, the railroad will spend $3.1 billion across its entire network.
