• Metro Breaks Ground on Glendale Safety Corridor


    LOS ANGELES COUNTY— Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, Chairman of the MTA and Metrolink Director, joined community leaders and residents at the groundbreaking of Metrolink’s new Glendale Corridor project which will improvefour crossings in the cities of Glendale and Los Angeles.

    “Our first priority is safety,” said Antonovich.  “The 2008 Chatsworth tragedy and the 2005 Glendale crash strengthen our resolve to prevent these types of accidents from ever happening again. These improvements are part of a larger effort to upgrade our Metrolink system throughout southern California — especially on the Antelope Valley line from Lancaster to Los Angeles Union Station.”

    The four highlighted projects along the “Glendale Corridor” are at Sonora and Grandview avenues in Glendale, along with crossings at Chevy Chase Drive and Broadway/Brazil Street, bordering the cities of Glendale and Los Angeles.

    The crossing upgrades include roadway widening, new automatic vehicle exit gates, sidewalks, handrails, automatic pedestrian gates and traffic signal advance preemption technology.
