Document Description
The Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA) is proposing the El Monte Siding Extension Project (Project) to upgrade Metrolink's current regional passenger rail services along its existing San Bernardino Line. The Project includes new rail infrastructure that would be constructed almost entirely within SCRRA’s right of way (ROW) in the City of El Monte, with grade crossing improvements at El Monte Station and Tyler Avenue, and a siding extension. The Project would extend the existing track siding, which starts west of El Monte Station, by 3,170 feet. The Project is within a 0.9-mile railroad segment on Metrolink’s San Gabriel Subdivision and would extend from Mile Post (MP) 12.9 to MP 13.5, terminating north of Interstate 10 (I-10).
