March 25, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Union Pacific donated $500,000 toward the Nebraska Centennial Mall revitalization project during a ceremony held at the State Capitol Rotunda.

Union Pacific's donation was part of an effort to raise $9.6 million to create a new interactive educational system that will allow visitors to access in-depth information about historical sites, notable citizens and industries while touring Centennial Mall. The new system will be driven by QR (quick response) technology.

Funds also will be used to renovate the mall's "Spirit of Nebraska" pathway a series of granite and bronze tiles placed along the twin walkways that run seven blocks between the Nebraska State Capitol and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Tiles recognize famous Nebraskans or individuals, organizations and businesses.

The project currently is 75 percent funded. The goal is to have the new Nebraska Centennial Mall built in time for the Nebraska Sesquicentennial in 2017.
