FRA Provides $2.97 Million to Port of San Francisco for Track Improvements

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has awarded a Rail Line Relocation and Improvement Capital Program grant to improve a nearly mile long track within the Port of San Francisco. Once completed in July 2015, the Quint Street Lead between Oakdale Avenue and Third Street will be upgraded from Industrial Track to Class 1 Track, which can be used for low speed mainline service. The project will also increase the safety and flow of motor vehicle traffic by reducing delays when freight trains entering or exiting the facility block nearby city streets, as well as help avoid potential delays affecting CALTRAIN commuter rail service.
