Document Description
The Project would enhance safety, efficiency and reliability of commuter and intercity passenger and freight rail systems. Improvements to the tracks and signal controls between Metrolink’s Burbank Airport-South and Glendale stations would reduce train congestion and increase on-time performance on track shared with other passenger and freight rail services. Platform and walkway improvements would improve pedestrian access and safety. The proposed improvements would be entirely within the existing railroad ROW. The following are the proposed conceptual improvements for the stations: >> Burbank Airport South-Station • Relocate west crossover and signals for CP Katz • Provide a pedestrian crossing with standard 9, swing gate, pedestrian channelization, fencing, metal hand railing, signage, striping, and ADA-compliant crossing panels • Install Intertrack fence • Reconstruct south platform and reinstall canopies. Modify canopies as needed • Shift Track 2 • Install mini-high platform, consisting of ramps and elevated loading sections to meet the rail car door height • Provide walkway safety lighting • Modify Station kiss-and-ride >> Burbank Downtown Station • Provide 120 ft platform extension to the north • Provide a pedestrian crossing with standard 9, swing gate, pedestrian channelization, fencing, metal hand railing, signage, striping, and ADA-compliant crossing panels • Upgrade existing Standard 8 to Standard 9, install swing gate pedestrian channelization, signage, striping, and ADA-compliant crossing • Replace and extend Intertrack fence • Provide walkway safety lighting • Modify existing station parking lot >> Glendale Station • Install new Intertrack fence at the north edge of the platform • Provide a pedestrian crossing with Standard 9, swing gate, pedestrian channelization, fencing, metal hand railing, signage, striping, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant crossing panels • Install mini-high platform, consisting of ramps and elevated loading sections to meet the rail car door height • Relocate existing, non-historic, signal and communications houses • Provide walkway safety lighting • Modify existing station parking lot.
