Grade Separation Project
City of Industry and Los Angeles County
The Fullerton Road Grade Separation Project would lower Fullerton Road under the existing Union Pacific railroad tracks in the City of Industry and unincorporated area of Los Angeles County, between Rowland Street and State Route 60 (SR-60). 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.
The Fullerton Road Grade Separation construction contract was awarded in March 2016. Roadway widening on Fullerton Road near SR-60 has been completed. Major construction activities began in June 2019 with the closure of Fullerton Road between Gale Avenue and Rowland Street/San Jose for underpass and bridge construction. The project cost is estimated at $159.5 million.
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.
