SANTA TERESA, N.M. (AP) — Union Pacific Railroad is planning grand opening for its new rail facility in southern New Mexico.
The Santa Teresa May 28 event planned by the Omaha, Nebraska-based freight railroad marks completion of a 2,200-acre facility that includes ramps to transfer freight between trains and trucks. It also includes fueling facilities and crew-change buildings.
Union Pacific says dignitaries scheduled to participate in the event include New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and U.S. Sens. Martin Heinrich and Tom Udall.
Construction began in 2011.
