A message from Union Pacific
Union PacificUnion Pacific Railroad has begun construction on a multi-million dollar project that will extend a second rail line through Sugar Land, Stafford and Missouri City, Texas, as part of an overall plan to improve train operating efficiency.

Six new track miles are being installed from Ulrich Street to Gessner Road in Missouri City. The first construction phase will involve preparation activities inside Union Pacific’s existing right of way requiring temporary railroad crossing closures. The second construction phase, slated to begin in 2015, will be the track installation. This phase also will require temporary crossing closures.

Union Pacific will meet regularly with local officials to keep the community informed of construction progress,
scheduled closures and alternative routes. Additionally, message boards will be placed to notify drivers of upcoming
closures approximately two weeks in advance. Learn more >>
