L. A. County Grade Crossing and Corridor Safety Program

> Examine 111 at-grade crossings.

> Develop an overall strategy to corridor solutions based on engineering, education, and enforcement.

> Multi-phased program.

> Extensive outreach to the communities.

> Establish funding strategies to address crossing and corridor issues.

> RFP in Summer 2014.

> Will identify use of four Project Study Reports.

Brighton to Roxford Double Track

> Identified in AVL study as a significant constraint.

> Second on the regional MOU priority list.

> Will address grade crossing safety issues in the corridor.

> Will facilitate HSR.

> RFP expected 8/14.

15

Brighton to Roxford Double Track

> Adds a second track east of the existing track.

> 10.4 miles of second mainline track > Sixteen at-grade crossings > Two single platform stations > Three pedestrian crossings > Retrofit three existing bridges > Two Phased RFP > Environmental > PS&E 16

What is in the Future?

> Develop an L.A. County rail program.

> AVL study, > San Bernardino Line study, > Grade crossing and corridor safety.

> Advance projects and programs that: > Enhance capacity, > Improve mobility for the region, > Provide safety benefits.

> Establish the programming need in L.A. County: > Measure R, > Grade crossing funding programs, > Other sources.
