The walls were built on the property line. In order to build new walls with deeper foundations and the associated lower sidewalks and streets behind them the walls were removed and temporary fences put in.
As they progress further east to other crossings they will in fact be destroying homes and businesses.
TCS - and they don't care who it affects.

Well that is a real shame.

No, that's Eminent Domain.
Mr. MRL - but yeah, it sucks for those who loose their property.

Don't ever buy a house next to a freeway or airport or railroad and you shouldn't have a problem. Who wants to live there anyway. Sheesh

BNSF train U-NEEATW5 14 arrived into porphyry at 6pm Thursday march 15. It has 27 loads, sounds like a CWR train. My guess is it will be dropping rail any day now at Kramer for the shoofly. These trains usually don't stick around so expect this rail drop to be done by Monday.

Will they have enough space to build the shofly so trains can maintain their current speeds?
RE: Kramer Blvd Underpass - chris_wlkr - 03-16-2012 07:42 AM
Your taking a relative straight section of track, and replacing it with a curved section to go around something. I would not count on maintaining the current speed even if they just lay the track down the middle of Crowther. Should provide for some interesting images while the area is viewable. The Melrose overpass shoe fly sure did.
RE: Kramer Blvd Underpass - orange choo choo - 03-16-2012 07:47 AM
That's what I was thinking unless the rail west and east of the construction area is gradually pulled south to smooth out the curve to reach the shofly on Crowther.

Expect a maximum of 40mph if that, but it's still a ways off. They still have curbs, traffic lights to remove, and dirt to import, compact and level beforehand.
TCS - Highland was a 40
