Riverside, Calif., commits $4.45 million to grade separation project

Written by 

The City Council of Riverside, Calif., pledged $4.45 million of federal grants toward buying land for the $32 million Iowa Avenue railroad grade separation project.

Iowa Avenue is one of more than two dozen crossings within the city without overpasses or underpasses leading to severe traffic congestion. Grade separations have become a priority in recent years and the city is either designing, constructing or just completed five grade separation projects.

Design and land purchases for the Iowa Avenue project are expected to be completed late this year with construction to begin in early 2011.
