Rumor: The city of Sugar Land can control the railroads and rights of ways at the crossings

Posted on June 5, 2017 at 2:07 p.m. by Web Admin

Fact: UPRR owns the rights to the railroad and all of the rights of way at the crossings. The city cannot have any work performed within 25 feet of the rail track without proper permits from UPRR. However, the city works with UPRR to address the concerns of Sugar Land residents during their projects.
