Document Description
The proposed project is a railroad infrastructure improvement and construction project located within an existing 25 mile railroad corridor in the Tehachapi Pass. The project would construct an additional track along two of nine single track segments that are located in the Tehachapi Pass. The Walong to Marcel segment spans a distance of 1.01 miles, and the Cliff Siding Extension segment spans a distance of .37 miles, which will result in douple tracking of a total distance of 1.38 miles. The project would also extend and improve existing culverts as needed to accommodate the additional track.
