Santa Ana Second Main Track

Cost:$13 million
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.
