Document Description
On February 16, 2006, the CPUC issued Decision 06-02-036 conditionally granting approval of the City of Petaluma's application to relocate an at-grade mainline railroad crossing from Hopper Street, just south of Lakeville Highway, to Caulfield Lane, just north of Hopper Street. The relocated crossing at Caulfield Lane and closure of the crossing at Hopper Street were completed in 2011. Decision 06-02-036 included a conditional of approval that the Caulfield Lane railroad crossing would need to be re-authorized at the time that passenger rail service was initiated. Through the initiation of passenger rail service has not yet been finalized, the current filing deadline established by the CPUC for requesting continued authorization of the existing crossing is December 31, 2011. Thus the City has performed environmental review to evaluate potential environmental impacts associated with permanent authorization of the relocated Caulfield railroad crossing, taking into consideration the planned future passenger rail service and other cumulative projects, as applicable.
