Bailey Branch Railroad:

The Union Pacific Railroad has retained a private contractor to remove rail and ties to complete their abandonment of the line from approximately Greenberry Road to Monroe and Dawson. Benton County doesn’t have direct involvement in this work but as the owner of the right of way, we will strive to keep adjacent property owners informed of the work. The contractor has provided a tentative start time of early February. If you have any question please contact the Public Works Department at 541-766-6821 and ask for Laurel Byer, Laurie Starha, Joe Mardis, or Roger Irvin.
