Metrolink completes crossing upgrades in Glendale
Located in Glendale, Calif., the crossing is one in a series of 120 crossings slated for improvements in San Fernando Valley, and Ventura and Orange counties. Funded by the city of Glendale, the $5 million project included the addition of quad gates, raised concrete medians, pedestrian gates and channelization devices, advanced signal pre-emption and dedicated turn lanes.
During the next several years, Metrolink plans to compete other crossing improvement in the Glendale/Los Angeles corridor as funding becomes available.
