Railroad projects under way in Grand County

Union Pacific Railroad plans to invest more than $10 million in the rail line that runs from near the east portal of Moffat Tunnel to near Kremmling, according to the company.

Various projects over almost 70-miles of the line include removing and installing more than 55,600 ties, as well as renewing the surfaces at 51 road crossings.

Crews will also spread nearly 33,600 tons of rock ballast to help provide a more stable roadbed and replace more than 2 miles of rail.

The rail and crossing surface projects began at the end of June and the tie project began Sept. 15. All projects are scheduled to be completed by the end of December.
