Union Pacific Rail Line - Chaska to Carver

Carver County along with Scott County, City of Carver, City of Chaska and and the Metropolitan Council recently purchased the former railroad property from Union Pacific Railroad which ran from United Sugar in Chaska to the Union Junction in Scott County (between Shakopee and Jordan).
