Track Upgrade Set From East L.A. to Riverside

January 27, 2006|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Union Pacific Railroad will begin a three-month, $21.3-million track upgrade from East Los Angeles to Riverside early next month, a company spokeswoman said.

The project, which involves replacing 43 miles of rail and resurfacing public crossings, could entail detours and disrupt Riverside Metrolink service.

Workers will replace wooden ties with concrete ones and lay new steel rail to reduce repairs on the heavily used line.

The work will affect the City of Industry, Walnut, Pomona, Ontario, Mira Loma and Riverside from February to April.
