Document Description
The Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA), in partnership with the BNSF Railway (BNSF), is proposing the Kraemer Boulevard to Control Point (CP) Esperanza Third Main Track Project (Project) within BNSF’s San Bernardino Subdivision. The Project includes the construction of a new, continuous third main line track, the rehabilitation of unutilized main track, the conversion of existing storage track to main track, the construction of new siding track, and the realignment of several segments of existing track within BNSF’s existing right of way (ROW) between Kraemer Boulevard at Mile Post (MP) 42.50 in the City of Placentia and CP Esperanza at MP 35.80 in the City of Yorba Linda, Orange County, California. The Project improvements would facilitate hourly bidirectional passenger service during off peak times and half-hourly service during peak times along Metrolink’s 91/Perris Valley (91/PV) Line and Inland Empire Orange County (IEOC) Line, which overlap between CP Atwood and the Perris Valley Junction in Riverside, California.
