OC Bridges Project
The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is building a series of bridges to separate trains from vehicles along the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) corridor in Fullerton, Placentia and Anaheim. In accordance with federal railroad safety regulations, residents should expect to hear an increase in the frequency of train horns because of construction activities on and around the railroad tracks, regardless of quiet zone designation. Funding sources for the OC Bridges Project include Measure M, Orange County's half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements, and California Proposition 1B Trade Corridor Improvement Funds.
Lakeview Avenue Bridge Project
OCTA is moving forward with the construction of the Lakeview Avenue overcrossing, which will reconstruct Lakeview Avneue as a bridge to allow vehicles to pass over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway tracks. The overpass will be built at Lakewood Avenue and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway between Orachard Drive to the north and Eisenhower Circle to the south. When completed, the project will move cars safely and smoothly over the railroad tracks, enhancing safety and boosting mobility.
