Center Street, Mesquite Street and Collins Street are all open. Union Pacific opened Collins on Tuesday evening, a day earlier than expected.

  1. When will Bowen be upgraded?

      Bowen will be upgraded by Union Pacific’s local crews, but we do not have a date for that project as of yet. UP has indicated it will be a few months before they are back to do the work.
