Document Description
The proposed project includes the construction of a new rail yard, storage and servicing tracks, operations and maintenance buildings, landscape improvements, pedestrian improvements, and safety and security features. Funding is currently not available to construct the entire facility at once. Instead, a phased construction approach is intended, constructing an initial portion of the facility which includes the most immediately needed elements, and adding the remaining components as the need arises and additional funding becomes available. The project site is located on approximately 13 acres of relatively undeveloped land in the City of San Luis Obispo, which is situated along the Central Coast region of the state, about 190 miles north of Los Angeles. The proposed project is located south of the existing San Luis Obispo Amtrak Station (1011 Railroad Avenue). It 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.
