Document Description
On June 21, 2004, the City of Petaluma filed an application with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) requesting authority, under Public utility Code 1201-1205, 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 intent of the relocated railroad crossing was to improve vehicular access, pedestrian and traffic safety, and traffic circulation for the area in accordance with the approved 2003 Central Petaluma Specific Plan. The City has conducted this environmental review to evaluate potential environmental impacts associated with permanent authorization of the relocated railroad crossing. The project results in the continued operation of an existing at-grade rail road crossing and does not involve any physical change in the environment.
