Rosecrans/Marquardt Grade Separation Project
Metro and Caltrans have studied ways to improve the railroad crossing at the intersection of Rosecrans Avenue and Marquardt Avenue in Santa Fe Springs. In March 2016, Metro identified the preferred alternative to grade-separate Rosecrans Avenue and Marquardt Avenue from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railway. Since then, the project team has been working on refining the preferred alternative, completing the environmental process, and getting the project ready for construction. Metro, Caltrans, and the City of La Mirada will be hosting a community meeting on October 17th to provide an update on the status of the environmental and design process, and anticipated next steps leading to the construction phase. Feedback from the public will also be welcome at this meeting.

Free Mulch Distribution, Paper Shredding, and E-Waste Collection Event
La Mirada Residents can take advantage of a free mulch distribution event sponsored by the City of La Mirada and EDCO Disposal. Mulch is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool, and make the garden bed look more attractive. This is a self-serve, self-loading service, and residents must bring their own cans/bags and shovel. There will be a limit of three cans/bags per vehicle. Remember to bring a tarp to cover the material if hauling in an open truck on trailer.
Residents can also protect the security of their confidential information by shredding personal documents. Certified shredding trucks will be present during the event and all items will be shredded on-site. Quantities are limited to three bankers boxes (10”x12”x15”) per household.
Unwanted electronics waste (e-waste) will also be collected including TVs, computer monitors, printers, fax machines, VCRs, etc.
This event is limited to La Mirada residents only and will be located on Saturday, October 14 from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot at the La Mirada Community Gymnasium, 15105 Alicante Road. Please bring proof of residency (i.e. CA Driver's License or utility bill). Residents are asked to enter the Community Gymnasium parking lot from Alicante Road. Household Hazardous Waste will not be accepted.
