Railroad Crossing Construction


As part of the Perris Valley Line Project, local streets will be closed to reconstruct the railroad crossings.  Construction crews will remove existing pavement and tracks and replace with new railroad crossing panels, asphalt pavement, curb and gutter and sidewalks.  Track signals and final pavement will be installed at a later date.  During the weekend closure of East Ellis Avenue, motorists can use Redlands Avenue, 7th Street, G Street and Case Road as an alternate route. 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.
