The Orange County Transportation Authority in Southern California last week unveiled recently completed improvements of Metrolink's Anaheim Canyon Station.

Located on the Inland Empire-Orange County Line, the station now has a second passenger platform; new benches, shade structures and ticket vending machines; an extension of the original passenger platform; a new, 3,400-foot second track that will allow more than one train to stop at the station at the same time; and improvements to at-grade crossings at La Palma and Tustin avenues.

The upgrades are expected to improve service reliability and on-time performance, OCTA officials said in a press release. More than 36 trains travel through the area every day.

The $34.2 million project was funded by Orange County's Measure M sales tax for transportation improvements and federal sources.
