Document Description
The City of Elk Grove proposes to construct an intermodal rail station south of the Sheldon Road/Elk Grove Florin Boulevard intersection on the west side of Elk Grove Florin Road at the UPRR tracks. The proposed project would construct a minimum 800 foot platform along the railroad tracks and approximately 110 parking spaces, with the possibility for future expansion. Pedestrian and transit features have also been included as part of the proposed project including a pedestrian trail along Whitehouse Creek, a bus drop off/loading zone, a passenger drop off/loading zone, meandering sidewalks with landscaping along Elk Grove-Florin Road, and a bus turnout along Elk Grove-Florin Road. Other project components include a new signalized intersection at Elk Grove-Florin Road and Sheldon Road, landscaping surrounding the project, and an area for a future 1,500 square foot building at the platform. To accommodate the pedestrian trail along Whitehouse Creek, the proposed project would bridge Whitehouse Creek to allow for vehicular traffic as well as the passenger platform. In addition, vegetation removal will be required to allow for the construction of the new rail stop.
