On Sunday, June 2, 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 Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne and Pomona requiring stoppage of all traffic across the rail corridor for approximately 3-5 minutes each test run, with the possibility of longer delays. The testing will require a freight train (Metrolink or BNSF train) to run at 40 miles per hour (MPH) between Lone Hill Ave in Glendora and Wheeler Ave in La Verne. 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. Additional streets east and west of those being tested will also be impacted to allow the train to accelerate and decelerate; see the list below. The communication system’s testing is part of the initial construction activities for the Foothill Gold Line light rail project being built from Azusa to Montclair.
