Turnbull Canyon Road
Grade Separation Project
City of Industry and Los Angeles County
The Turnbull Canyon Road Grade Separation Project will separate the roadway and the Union Pacific Railroad railroad tracks on Turnbull Canyon Road in the City of Industry/County of Los Angeles. Plans call for constructing a two-lane roadway overpass at Turnbull Canyon Road between Salt Lake Avenue on the north and Clark Avenue on the south to carry vehicles over the railroad tracks.

The Turnbull Canyon Road Grade Separation Project is in the final engineering and design stage. State environmental clearance has been obtained and right-of-way is being acquired. The project cost is estimated at $83.4 million.
Project Impacts and Project Need
The project would reduce an estimated 447 minutes of delay each day at the crossing which is traversed by 47 trains per day. Turnbull Canyon Road carries 12,892 vehicles per day (including 23 school buses, 9 passenger buses and 11 hazmat trucks) which is projected to increase to 15,110 vehicles by 2025. The project would eliminate delays for emergency responders and crossing collisions. Emissions would be reduced and locomotive horn noise eliminated. The Federal Railroad Administration has recorded 14 collisions at the crossing, including 3 fatalities.
