Santa Ana Second Main Track
|Client:||Southern California Regional Rail Authority|
|Location:||Santa Ana, CA|
|Markets:||Rail (Commuter & Freight Rail)|
Flatiron constructed a new main track railroad for commuter and freight trains in Santa Ana, California. This $12.6 million project alleviated a bottlenecked single track and allowed more trains to travel through the area.
Flatiron installed approximately one-half mile of 20-inch waterline and 2,200 feet of 66-inch storm drain pipe. Flatiron also constructed three retaining walls, totaling almost one mile in length, which act as barriers for the track's new right-of-way. To protect columns of the Garden Grove Freeway (a 12-mile east-west freeway also called state Route 22), Flatiron constructed two crash walls.
Flatiron also reconstructed four-grade crossings and replaced approximately one mile of Lincoln Avenue that runs parallel to the new track.
