Union Pacific Railroad
An afternoon of trying to outrun an oncoming train proved deadly for a Fort Worth teenager.
This week authorities “staked out” a North Texas railroad crossing and issued 20 citations in a 3-hour period. The crackdown on drivers ignoring the flashing red lights was a collaboration between police and Union Pacific Railroad.
Four railroad workers stood on either side of the railroad crossing on Cooper Street in Arlington Thursday, holding large stop signs. Frustrated drivers with no place to turn around could only wait for the intersection to clear.
Delays and changes could ease headaches for drivers trying to maneuver through a major Arlington railway construction project.
Drivers in and through Arlington are being forewarned about a major railway construction project that will simultaneously close railroad crossings and is expected to cause traffic headaches.
Union Pacific says it’s adjusting the timing of the West Texas railroad crossing signal where a collision last month killed four military veterans riding in a parade.
The best view of Union Pacific’s massive Davidson Yard is from the Hulen Street Bridge. From five stories above you can see the size and scope of the operation. It is the second largest train yard in Texas.
A Texas jury has awarded nearly $1 million to a Union Pacific worker who sued the railroad after claiming he was infected with West Nile virus while on the job.
Division Street between Dottie Lynn Parkway and West Fork Road remains closed Sunday while Union Pacific employees work to clear a railway of three locomotives and five rail cars that derailed when an eastbound train slammed into one that was stopped on the tracks Saturday night.
