The Union Pacific Railroad right of way is slowly being cleared of heavy weed growth, said Mark Lloyd, the city's community development director.

The railroad company has cleared tracks on either side of Magnolia Avenue between Chapman and Katella avenues, as well as those crossing Western Avenue, Lloyd said.

Numerous residents have complained that the weeds pose a fire hazard to nearby communities. Phone calls to Union Pacific have resulted in some action. But Lloyd said weeds growing over 7 feet tall still dot the landscape of many Stanton tracks.
