Grade separation to gain further study in southern California


Last week, the city of Walnut, Calif., approved a motion to further study a proposed $67.9 million grade separation project at Fairway Drive and Valley Boulevard.

The Alameda Corridor-East Construction Authority plans to build the grade separation along Union Pacific Railroad right of way if funding is secured and a study is updated. The structure would ease traffic congestion in the area and accommodate an expected increase in freight train movements through Walnut.

The authority plans to build 20 grade separations in California’s San Gabriel Valley to mitigate the impacts of increased rail traffic along 70 miles of mainlines. Ten grade separations are completed or under way and the remainder are in the planning stages.
