About the Project:
The State College Boulevard Grade Separation will create an underpass by lowering State College Boulevard between Santa Fe Avenue to the north and approximately 500 feet past Valencia Drive to the south This project is currently in construction and expected to finish by approximately Spring 2018. A full closure of State College Boulevard began in early 2015 and is expected to continue until approximately summer 2017. During the closure, drivers are being detoured to Acacia Avenue, which has been temporarily striped to a four-lane roadway. When completed, the project will move cars safely and smoothly under the railroad tracks, enhancing safety and boosting mobility.
