Previously, train switching activities at Delta Yard caused frequent delays to Amtrak Cascades service at Delta Junction. Track improvements at both locations enable freight train switching activities to continue without disrupting passenger trains.
Upgraded signals improve rail safety.
Strategic track improvements and additional new track help relieve main line rail congestion in the Delta Yard and at Delta Junction.
