Pomona At-Grade Crossing Safety Improvement Project
City of Pomona
To improve safety at at-grade crossings in the City of Pomona, pedestrian crossing gates would be installed as well as fencing along a portion of railroad right-of-way to channel pedestrians to gates. Improvements at the crossings at Hamilton Boulevard, Park Avenue, Main Street, Palomares Street and San Antonio Avenue would include improved sidewalks leading to the pedestrian gates and other required street improvements as well as upgraded warning signals and signage.
ACE selected a firm in February 2015 to design the proposed at-grade crossing safety improvements. Project cost is estimated at $24.2 million.
The project will improve pedestrian safety at the five crossings which are traversed by 81 trains per day, projected to increase to 141 trains per day by 2025. The Federal Railroad Administration has recorded 32 collisions between trains and vehicles or pedestrians at the five crossings resulting in 19 fatalities and 10 injuries.
