On Sunday, April 28, the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority will be testing a newly installed underground communication system for the freight train system that runs through the cities of Azusa, Glendora and San Dimas. The testing will require a freight train (Metrolink or BNSF locomotive) to run at 40 miles per hour (MPH) between Barranca Ave. in Glendora and Gladstone Ave. in San Dimas (including all street crossings within the city of Glendora). The testing involves several trials on the active freight corridor to ensure the new communication system will activate and deactivate the train signals at all street crossings.
Testing will occur from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm on Sunday, April 28th. View the map of the affected areas in Azusa.
