Concrete Grade Crossing Replacement


As part of work on Metro’s New Blue Improvements Project, Metro’s contractor, Railworks, will replace concrete grade crossings along the Blue Line beginning at 4th Street and Pacific Av on Monday, Jan 28th at 7 pm until Tuesday, February 12th, 2019 at 5 am.

This intersection will be closed for two weeks to stockpile railroad tracks in addition to the grade crossing work.


There will be a full closure of the intersection at 4th Street and Pacific Av for two weeks.
Vehicles will continue to be able to drive north and southbound down Pacific Av, however, they will not be able to make turns across the tracks. Detour signage will be posted along Pacific Av.

What to Expect

Construction Activities will involve the use of heavy equipment and small tools, in addition to placement of large panels, and will have potential to create noise.
Noise monitors will be used onsite while construction activities are in progress. If it is found that such noise levels are above the authorized limit, RailWorks will implement additional noise mitigation measures including the use of sound blankets (large, flexible panels) to reduce the noise level.
