The Rosecrans/Marquardt Grade Separation project was environmentally cleared under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) with a Statutory Exemption in 2016. Metro also completed the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Project under NEPA and received an associated Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) in November 2018.
Metro Real Estate is continuing with the right-of-way acquisition process.
Metro is also coordinating pre-construction activities, including demolition of existing structures within the project limits and advanced utility relocation (“AUR”) such as power transmission/distribution lines, communications and fiber optics.
These activities include:
November 2019: Demolition of the building at 14330 Marquardt Av
November 2019: Southern California Gas Company – gas line abandonment
December 2019: City of Santa Fe Springs – water line relocation
November/December 2019: City of Santa Fe Springs – installation of new streetlights Traffic Signal and Street Light Conduit Relocation
January thru August June 2020: Southern California Edison – Installation of new power poles, overhead and underground electrical work.
Activities have appropriate approvals and permits for work.
Construction of the proposed bridge is anticipated to begin March 2021.
What to Expect
There will be intermittent traffic lane impacts, however there will be no road closures. At least one lane in each direction will remain open.
Construction is a dynamic activity, and work dates, times, and locations are dependent on several variables.
