JEFFERSON CITY — Union Pacific said it is spending more than $3 million to improve its rail line in central Missouri.

The company operates one of the major east-west rail routes through Missouri, which carries both freight trains and Amtrak passenger trains.

Union Pacific said it will be installing more than 22,000 ties, spreading more than 11,000 tons of rock and resurfacing 31 road crossings in the Jefferson City area.

The tie replacement project began in late April and is scheduled to be completed by the end of June. The road resurfacing is scheduled to be done by the end of this month.
