Document Description
The Miramar Hills Curve Realignment and Second Main Track project study area lies within the ridgelines of Soledad Canyon, and extends approximately from the intersection of Sorrento Valley Boulevard and Sorrento Valley Road, under Interstate 805, to just south of Miramar Road. The proposed action involves realigning a portion of an existing railroad track and installing a second main track from Control Point (CP) Pines (Mile Post (MP) 249) near Sorrento Station southeast to CP Cumbres (MP 253) near Miramar Road. The existing track alignment closely follows the southerly wall of the canyon, and consists of steep grades and sharp curves. The alignment of the existing track is such that passenger (and freight) train speeds are severely limited. The second main track would generally parallel the existing track at the two ends of the canyon, but in the mid-portion of the project cross to the north side of the canyon and traverse undeveloped hillsides. The second main track would have a straighter alignment to allow an increase in passenger train speeds from 30 to 48 mph.
