The new railroad bridge over the Osage River west of here is a significant infrastructure improvement. It officially was opened this past week. There now are two Union Pacific Railroad tracks on the eastern section of the St. Louis to Kansas City corridor, which is 275 miles in length.

Before the second bridge was built, train traffic had to be delayed when the tracks narrowed to one lane at the Osage River. The second bridge will improve on-time performance of both freight and passenger trains. There will be more efficient movement of goods along the corridor.
