Metrolink San Bernardino Line Double Track Project (Lilac to Rancho)

People reading Metrolink San Bernardino Line Double Track Project (Lilac to Rancho) banners

The Lilac to Rancho Double Track project is critical to regional mobility and will enhance rail operations on Metrolink’s busiest commuter rail line by increasing average train speed, reducing travel times, and enhancing overall capacity of the Metrolink San Bernardino Line. Preliminary engineering and CEQA clearance is complete and SBCTA achieved 30 percent design of the project in 2018. Metrolink has identified a substantial portion of this segment, from CP Lilac to the Rialto Metrolink station, which includes a pedestrian underpass, as a priority in its multi-year Southern California Optimized Rail Expansion (SCORE) Program and is working to secure construction funding for this segment.

The Lilac to Rancho Double Track Project has the following features:

  • Approximately 3 miles of additional double track in the cities of Rialto and San Bernardino.
  • Addition of a second passenger platform at the existing Metrolink Rialto Station, as well a pedestrian underpass for access.
  • Ten at-grade crossings within and near the double track footprint with quiet zone safety enhancements.
  • New railroad signals as well as Positive Train Control (PTC) considerations and required improvements.
  • Civil improvements including grading, drainage and utilities.
  • Modifications to 8 at-grade crossings within the Project footprint to improve roadway profiles.
