New $156 Mil Rosecrans Avenue Bridge Opens Carrying Vehicles Over Railway in Santa Fe Springs


The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), in partnership with various local, state and federal agencies, has opened the new Rosecrans Avenue Bridge in Santa Fe Springs. The bridge, which is part of the Rosecrans/Marquardt Grade Separation project, enhances safety and saves motorists time by separating vehicle and train traffic.

"This new bridge will provide the much-needed safety and traffic relief that residents and businesses in the area require,” said L.A. Mayor and Metro Board Chair Karen Bass. “As major rail projects like High-Speed Rail make their way to Los Angeles, we must be sure that our county is ready for a transportation future that is safer, faster and more reliable.”

Spanning approximately 581 feet and with a width of 104 feet, this vast structure features two vehicle lanes in each direction, a raised central median and sidewalks on both sides. This new crossing fixes an at-grade area that the California Public Utilities Commission identified as one of the most dangerous rail crossings in California. Prior to today, an estimated 45,000 vehicles and 135 trains traveled through this location daily and from 2013 to 2019, the CPUC recorded 31 incidents involving vehicles and trains resulting in six fatalities and seven injuries.

The new rail crossing will eliminate train-to-vehicle traffic and pedestrian collisions by carrying vehicular traffic over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway, improve air quality by eliminating idling trains and vehicles, increase rail efficiency by enhancing passenger and freight rail services and accommodate potential future California High-Speed Rail trains.

While the entire project is expected to be finished in 2025, additions may include future bike lanes in each direction while crews continue adding new sidewalks and pavement to Marquardt Avenue, Frontage Road and Anson Avenue. Construction crews will also continue to install utility lines, landscaping, signage, striping and parking lot improvements.
