Plans call for constructing a six-lane roadway underpass on Fullerton Road, four-track railroad bridge and bridge for Railroad Street spanning Fullerton Road. Gale Avenue would be lowered at the intersection with Fullerton Road.

Project Status

The Fullerton Road Grade Separation construction contract was awarded in March 2016 and underground utility relocation and preliminary work has begun. The project cost is estimated at $152.4 million.

Project Impacts

The project would reduce an estimated 50.4 vehiclehours of delay each day at the crossing which is traversed by 49 trains per day, projected to increase to 91 trains by 2025. Fullerton Road carries 23,716 vehicles per day which is projected to increase to 25,315 vehicles by 2025. The project would eliminate delays for emergency responders and crossing collisions. The project would also reduce emissions and eliminate locomotive horn and crossing bell noise. The Federal Railroad Administration has recorded 2 train-vehicle collisions at the crossing in a recent 10 year period.
