The Doran Street Grade Separations Improvements Project will improve safety at this Metrolink crossing.
Location: San Fernando Valley
Phase: Environmental Review
Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: Interim Doran Street improvements, 2022
Metro’s plan for better transit includes replacing at-grade railroad crossings at Doran Street and West Broadway/Brazil Street with an above-grade crossing. The Salem/Sperry Overpass will connect Salem Street in Glendale and Sperry Street in LA. A connector road would extend West San Fernando Road to Fairmont Avenue.
An urgent need to improve the Doran Street at-grade rail crossing means interim improvements until the Salem/Sperry Overpass is built. These include signal modifications, automatic warning devices, a new pedestrian crossing and temporary two-way road configuration with “Quiet Zone Ready” improvements.
Metro plans to start construction for the interim improvements in 2021 and enhanced safety measures in 2022 to be completed in advance of the Salem/Sperry Overpass
