The Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor Agency has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report for the Central Coast Layover Facility
to relocate and expand the existing Pacific Surfliner layover track and facility, located at the northern end of the LOSSAN rail corridor in San Luis Obispo, California. The Central Coast Layover Facility proposed project includes the construction of a new rail yard, storage and servicing tracks, operations and maintenance buildings, landscape improvements, bike trail, and safety and security features. Perimeter fencing would be installed around the facility for site security and public safety.
The project site is located on approximately 13 acres of relatively undeveloped land in the City of San Luis Obispo, within existing railroad right of way. The existing Pacific Surfliner layover facility is located directly across from the San Luis Obispo Amtrak Station, located at 1011 Railroad Avenue. The project site is located approximately 0.3-mile south of the San Luis Obispo Amtrak Station. The project site extends from south of the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum’s parking lot to east of Lawrence Drive. The project site is between the Union Pacific Main Tracks and existing commercial and residential development to the west.
