Rail Success Stories - Colton Crossing

Rail Success Stories - Colton Crossing cover

Colton Crossing was widely known as a bottleneck in the Southern California supply chain before a grade separation and flyover project was completed in August of 2013. The project was undertaken through a partnership between USDOT, Caltrans, SANBAG, the city of Colton, UP, and BNSF. Originally estimated to cost $202 million and be completed in 2014, innovative engineering and management completed the project eight months ahead of schedule and at a cost of only $93 million. This project induced an estimated $828 million in public economic benefit.
