Document Description
The Riverside County Transportation Department (RCTD) in cooperation with the City of Jurupa Valley and the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) desire to construct a new grade separation to replace the existing Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) at-grade crossing located on Jurupa Road in the City of Jurupa Valley, just east of Van Buren Boulevard. Jurupa Road is a four-lane Arterial highway that's provides access to commercial, industrial and residential land uses in the City of Jurupa Valley. This proposed project will grade separate Jurupa road and the UPRR mainline tracks with an underpass where it crosses the tracks. This improvement will improve vehicular traffic circulation and safety, and will provide uninterrupted and efficient access for motorists, residents, businesses, pedestrians and emergency vehicles in the area. Additionally, the project will enhance the operational characteristics (i.e. speed, efficiency, and rehabilitee) of freight and passenger trains throughout Riverside County by eliminating conflicts between railroad operations and vehicular traffic. The Jurupa Road Grade Separation project will include all necessary improvements related to the construction of the Project, such as utility relocation, access modifications and construction detours. This project is subject to compliance with the Western Riverside County MSHCP. In accordance with Section 7.1 of the Western Riverside County MSHCP, the Project is a covered activity, subject to consistency with MSHCP Polices that apply outside of Criteria Area and PQ/P Lands.
