Union Pacific plans to invest $72M in 2015 to improve Louisiana's transportation infrastructure. The company's multi-million dollar private investment will enhance employee, community and customer safety and increase rail operating efficiency.

Union Pacific's planned investment covers a range of initiatives: $67M to maintain railroad track, $1M to enhance signal systems and $2M to maintain or replace bridges in the state. Key projects planned this year include: $11M investment in the rail line between Columbia and Pollock to replace 22 miles of rail and repair the surfaces at 21 road crossings. $8M investment in the rail line between Fordoche and Morrow to replace 22 miles of rail and repair the surfaces at 12 road crossings. Union Pacific plans to spend $4.2B across its network this year, following investments totaling more than $31B from 2005-2014.

11:35 EDTUNPUnion Pacific sees little improvement in coal shipments for remainder of Q2
On May 20, at the Wolfe Research Global Transportation Conference, Robert Knight, Jr., Executive Vice President-Finance and CFO of Union Pacific, stated that, with second quarter 2015 coal volumes down approximately 25% quarter-to-date versus last year, the company at this point does not expect to see much improvement in coal shipments for the remainder of the second quarter of 2015. Key volume drivers for coal continue to be the combination of low natural gas prices and mild weather conditions. Knight further noted that, as discussed on the company’s first quarter earnings release conference call, the company remains focused on re-aligning resources with demand to improve service and reduce costs. While progress is being made, the company expects the second quarter will still reflect the service and cost impacts of operating inefficiencies.

18:03 EDTTRNThe Federal Highway Administration updates highway guardrail review criteria
The Federal Highway Administration, FWHA, posted the following on its website: "In remarks made at the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials 2015 Spring Meeting in Cheyenne, Wyoming, on Friday, Federal Highway Administration Acting Administrator Gregory Nadeau announced a series of actions that will apply to the reimbursement eligibility process for states purchasing and installing guardrails, their components and other devices. FHWA is accelerating the transition to the latest crash test criteria for road safety hardware. Specifically, beginning on January 1, 2016, any proposed modification to a roadside safety device will require meeting full-scale crash test criteria outlined under AASHTO’s Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware, even if the device was previously tested and met National Cooperative Highway Research Program Report 350 criteria. “Our goal is to make our roads, bridges and highways as safe as possible, in part by accelerating the move to the newer crash test criteria,” Nadeau said. FHWA is also increasing transparency in its process for determining whether a specific device is eligible for federal reimbursement. In a letter to industry and other stakeholders, FHWA announced that it will require manufacturers and test labs to disclose all financial interests. FHWA has also recently commissioned an independent end-to-end review of the entire roadside safety hardware process from development and testing through field performance." The Fly notes that there is an ongoing probe of the safety of guardrails manufactured by Trinity Industries (TRN). Reference Link
