Union Pacific Railroad
Santa Teresa Terminal
Out of the sands of the Chihuahuan Desert, Union Pacific Railroad constructed a Railroad City called the Santa Teresa Terminal. It is located at the crossroads of freight movement from west coast ports to major consumer markets located anywhere from Atlanta to Chicago. This important project provides an efficient 2,200-acre fueling facility for Union Pacific's Sunset Route and an Intermodal Ramp that will support and energize the economy in the region, as well as a location for a future block swap yard. Construction began in June 2011, the run-through facility became operational on January 1, 2014 and the intermodal ramp became operational on April 1, 2014. The Santa Teresa Intermodal Ramp and Fueling Facility was built by focusing on safety, innovation, service performance and reliability from the initial concept and throughout design and construction.
