Document Description
Riverside County Transportation Committee (RCTC), proposes to construct the Riverside-Downtown Station Improvements Project (Project). The Project proposes construction of an additional platform, an extended pedestrian bridge and elevator, and associated tracks on the south side of the station, which would allow for two trains to service the station off the BNSF Railway (BNSF) mainline. The train traffic from the new Perris Valley Line (91/PV Line) can then connect with additional Metrolink Lines without impacting operations on the BNSF. This Project would add additional parking, improve local circulation around the south side of the station while improving train meet times. This Project would also maintain the existing storage tracks located east of the station, on the south side of the BNSF right-of-way.
