City of Industry, CA: ACE makes it 16

23 May

Federal, state and local officials have broken ground to mark the start of the 16th grade separation project under the auspices of the ACE Construction Authority’s work to improve safety and reduce congestion on the Alameda corridor.

The latest site at which work is underway is the Fullerton Road grade separation linking the City of Industry with an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County. The USD145.6 million project will see Fullerton Road lowered to pass beneath the Union Pacific (UP) right-of-way in place of the present at-grade route across the UP tracks

 

The Fullerton Road-UP intersection currently handles about 50 trains and 24,000 road vehicles each day with more in prospect over the next decade. Completion, scheduled for 2019 will eliminate substantial delays to road traffic and improve safety too. Of particular note is the improvement in response times of emergency vehicles using the Fullerton Road corridor.

FRA data records two train-road vehicle collisions within the last ten years.
