Plans for railroad underpass on track

In Local News, News

Plans are on schedule to construct a $153.7 million project for two underpasses below train tracks that currently cross major thoroughfares in Fullerton.

Beginning early 2014, the project will lower State College Boulevard and Raymond Avenue underneath the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad line, just north of Valencia Drive, according to the Orange County Register.

Plans show State College Boulevard looking north after the street is configured to pass under the Burlington Santa Fe rail crossing.

Don Hoppe, Fullerton’s director of engineering, said the construction will take 2 and a half years.

To allow traffic to continue through Raymond Avenue, a temporary road will continue on that stretch. However, State College will be closed during construction.

It is part of a $589 million OC Bridges project by the Orange County Transportation Authority.

Federal grants, along with Measure M, will pay for the work.
