PRESS RELEASE - RAILROAD TREES

 

For Immediate Release

 

Press Release

City of Blackfoot

August 23, 2017

 

We have been made aware that Union Pacific has been directed to remove a number of pine trees along Highway 91, as they are infringing on the signal wires and causing a safety hazard for the railroad.  In order to ensure that this area remains an area that our citizens enjoy, the City has planned for funds in the 2018 FY budget to landscape this area after the trees are removed by Union Pacific.
