These tracks create a mess at Fullerton Rd and also at Fairway in City of Industry.
And.... people dont realize, there are 2 sets of tracks. One is bad enough..
But, guess the tracks have been there far longer than homes and businesses have.
How can you argue?

Trains have the right of way in any case
Stay off the tracks

Why can't Montebello get a lowered roadbed as San Gabriel and Alhambra have?

the bassett / la, puente section of the tracks on valley blvd is being transformed into a barrier for around two and a half miles , east to west . from puente/workman mill rd , east to hacienda blvd . these people are putting a 30'ft wall that resembles the " iron cuttin " you would think that the rail road and government , would care a little more about astitics than they have . it seems like this area lacks when it comes to considerations when it come to community development

Forrest,
There very likely was a long and costly study (such as an Environmental Impact Report) that concluded it was more cost-effective--and would take less time--to raise the tracks 30 feet in the air.

The area is so dense that putting Sunset Avenue under the tracks--whether or not Valley would be lowered too--would be prohibitively difficult.

Forrest, I agree with you, but unfortunately, this must have been the easy way out.

Kudos to Alhambra... they put the tracks under the streets 35 years ago.. and under cost too!!!
Only city with any brains!!!
Unfortunately our local politicians have no forsight.
Or had.....
Everyone at that time was going east...
simply,,, no brains.. tracks were there since the
mid 1800's
