Document Description
The Rosecrans/Marquardt Grade Separation Project is proposed to eliminate an existing at grade rail crossing at the intersection of Marquardt Ave and Rosecrans in the city of Santa Fe Springs and alleviate existing and future traffic congestion. The project would construct a grade separation structure on Rosecrans Ave and re-align Rosecrans Ave on the south. The project would also relocate conflicting utility facilities. Utility work involves the relocation and replacement of 13 wood poles (75' to 85' in height) with 9 tubular steel poles and 4 wood poles ranging from 70'-110' in height. The relocation impacts the Carmenita-La Mirada 66kV, Eric-Wilshire 66kV, and Ely-Parkwood-Gilbert 66kV circuits and will be approx 2,100' in length. The disturbance for the TSP holes will include foundations approx 25' deep with a circumference of 6'. The wood pole holes will be approx 12' deep with a circumference of 4'. The poles are currently located along the north side of Rosecrans, running east and west, as well as along the west side of Marquardt (north of Rosecrans) and along the east side of Marquardt (south of Rosecrans). The poles are being relocated at varying distances to accommodate the new street and bridge alignment.
