Kraemer Boulevard Railroad Grade Separation Project

As a project engineer, PacRim Engineers will provide the structural engineering services for the Kraemer Boulevard Railroad Grade Separation Project.  The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), in cooperation with the cities of Placentia and Anaheim, obtained funding through the Trade Corridor Improvement Fund (TCIF) for five separate grade separation projects along the Orangethorpe rail corridor.  This particular project and its construction will cover nearly 1,600 feet total.  The purpose of the project is to alleviate the current and future traffic impacts and hazards posed at-grade rail crossings.  A new railroad bridge will accommodate two existing BNSF tracks and a future third track.  It will involve a 78” storm drain and sewer relocation and bypass, pump station, signage and signalization, roadway and ramps modifications, sidewalks and median modification, and other utility removal and relocation.
