Present Land Use
The Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad line in the Orangethorpe Corridor, existing roads for possible grade separation (Kraemer, Orangethorpe, Tustin/Rose, Van Buren, Jefferson, Richfield, Lakeview, and Kellogg), and adjacent residential, commercial, public and other uses.

Document Description
The proposed action is an improvement to the Orangethorpe railroad corridor and consists of standard grade separations at 8 arterial road crossings along an approx. 5 mi. long segment of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad alignments in the Cities of Placentia and Anaheim and unincorporated Orange Co. from west of Bradford Ave. to west of Imperial Highway (SR 90). Overcrossings across the BNSF will be provided at Orangethorpe Ave., Tustin Ave./Rose Dr., Lakeview Ave., Jefferson St., Van Buren St., and Richfield Rd. Undercrossings will be provided at Kraemer Blvd. and Kellogg Dr. Potential project benefits include traffic congestion relief, improved traffic circulation, improved vehicle and pedestrian safety, and reduced train whistle noise. Adverse project impacts include those related to property acquisition, residential and commercial relocations, temporary impacts to circulation and access during construction, visual impacts associated with new structures, and increased surface transportation noise.
