Document Description
The proposed project involves installation of rail crossing gates at 24 at-grade intersection crossings along the MGLEE alignment. The project would utilize standard rail crossing gate equipment that has been approved by the California Public Utilities Commission and utilized at other Metro Light Rail crossings. The crossing gate equipment would be mounted in the sidewalk in the public right-of-way and would be located near the limit lines of intersections being evaluated. In addition to the crossing gates, a single train controller cabinet (~ 6' x 10' x 3') would need to be installed at each intersection where gates are installed. The installation of gates may also require civil work, such as the relocation of existing underground or aboveground utilities, the installation of vehicle loops or track circuitry in the roadway, and may require street widening or the re-stripping of traffic lanes at certain intersections. Existing traffic signals and other lighting posts may need to be relocated for the installation of the gates at certain locations where conflicts arise.
