UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD BRIDGE

Project Location

Council Bluffs, IA

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Reconstruction of the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge is necessary to allow for increased capacity on I-29. The existing bridge will be rebuilt from its existing five tracks to three tracks to improve local yard operations. Bridge design has been optimized so roadway grade does not need to be altered during construction. The Union Pacific Railroad Bridge is located approximately one-half mile north of the I-80/I-29 interchange.

  • Improved yard operations resulted in reduction of track needed
  • New Union Pacific Railroad Bridge over I-29, allowing for eight lanes on I-29
