Former Union Pacific contractor faces fines

SANTA THERESA, N.M. (KRQE) – A former contractor working on the $400 million Union Pacific rail hub in southern New Mexico is accused of bidding for the job without a legal license.

Complaints say Ames Sundt JV bid on the job at the station in Santa Theresa.

The Albuquerque Journal reports potential fines against the company could reach millions of dollars.

State officials began an investigation about two years ago and formal complaints were filed in March.

Closed-door mediation is set for Tuesday in Albuquerque.

The contractors deny any wrongdoing.
