Grade Crossing Construction


As part of the Perris Valley Line Project, local streets will be closed to reconstruct the track crossings.  Construction crews will remove existing pavement and tracks and replace with new track crossing panels, asphalt pavement, curb and gutter and sidewalks.  Track signals and final pavement will be installed at a later date.  Motorists can use Prospect Avenue/Northgate Street, Palmyrita Avenue, Iowa Avenue and Center Street as a detour during this closure. Detour signs will be in place to direct motorists around the work area. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
