OMAHA, Neb. — Union Pacific crews will spend $2.5-million to maintain its rail lines through the state of Wisconsin this year. The investment includes new crossties, ballast, right-of-way improvements, and the installation of two new railroad bridges.

Major projects include a $721,000 investment to install a new bridge near Lowell, Wis., northwest of Milwaukee. The railroad has also allocated $500,000 to install a new bridge near Wilson, Wis., on its former Chicago & Northwestern Altoona Subdivision.

This year’s $2.5 million capital expenditure is part of a long-term strategy that has invested more than $75 million in UP’s Wisconsin rail network.

In 2017, the railroad will spend more than $3 billion across its entire system for similar projects.
