Below Ground Train Rail Approved In San Gabriel

New, 4 comments

The Pasadena Star-News reports that San Gabriel's traffic (and air quality from the idling cars) will be helped by the $330 million San Gabriel Trench, a recently approved below-grade freightrail line. More via the paper: "It is the largest award given to a single goods-movement project in the state from the Proposition 1B transportation bond, approved by voters in November 2006, authority officials said. The half-billion dollar project will involve construction of the trench and overpasses at those four main thoroughfares." Construction should start in two years and end by 2012 or 2013.
