State College Boulevard Grade Separation / Project Study Report
JMD provided professional engineering services to prepare a Project Study Report (PSR) and funding (CPUC and Caltrans) applications for the grade separation of State College Boulevard (formerly SR-250) and OCTA’s Orange Subdivision railroad corridor as well as preparing a crossing closure assessment for six Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) at-grade crossings in Anaheim, California. The PSR defined the most feasible alternative for grade separation at State College Boulevard to meet the City’s objectives for future project development and funding. The PSR includes the development of four conceptual alternatives including a roadway overpass, underpass, a railroad flyover and trench. Technical studies including hydrology, traffic (e.g., Traffic Study and Transportation Management Plan) and geotechnical analysis were also developed. An Advance Planning Study, conceptual track shoofly design and cost estimates were also included. The project included close coordination with the City of Anaheim, SCRRA/Metrolink, OCTA, CPUC and Caltrans for conceptual approval and funding (i.e. Section 190 by CPUC and Prop 1B by Caltrans).
