Document Description
The project consists of realignment of a portion of existing railroad track and installing a second main track from near Mile Post (MP) 251, east of Interstate Highway 805 to near MP 253, south of Miramar Road. The rail is presently single tracked and has the sharpest curves and steepest grade of any segment with the Los Angeles to San Diego (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor. The purpose of the project is to improve the horizontal track alignment by realigning the curved track to improve reliability, safety, train speed and rail capacity. Implementation of the project may require full and/or partial property acquisitions. The project would also have a need for temporary use of areas for construction access and staging which are located outside of the existing rail ROW.
