Start Preamble

In accordance with Part 235 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and 49 U.S.C. 20502(a), this document provides the public notice that by a document dated February 18, 2015, the Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) seeking approval for the discontinuance or modification of a signal system. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2015-0020.

Applicants: Union Pacific Railroad Company, Mr. Neal Hathaway, AVP Engineering—Signal, 1400 Douglas Street, MS 0910, Omaha, NE 68179.

UP seeks approval of the discontinuance of the coded track circuits on the siding between Control Point (CP) W045, at Milepost (MP) 45.30. and CP W047 MP 47.20, on the Greely Subdivision at LaSalle, CO. The diverging yellow and flashing yellow aspects will be retired from the B head of the W signal at CP W047, and the B head of the E signal at CP W045.

The purpose of the discontinuance is to facilitate the large number of switching operations that take place in the siding.

A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulatons.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12-140, Washington, DC 20590.
