Right of Way (ROW) Encroachment

The Track & Signal (T&S) Department plays a critical role in the maintenance of Metrolink’s Track and Signal Infrastructure, ensuring a safe and effective operating environment for trains and passengers. In addition to maintaining the tracks and signals, the Track & Signal Department oversees the coordination and oversight of 3rd party entry onto the Metrolink Right of Way. This ensures that all 3rd party projects are conducted in a safe manner around active train tracks, comply with all Metrolink, State, and Federal Regulations, and ensure compatibility with Metrolink’s infrastructure and operations. If you have a project that will be conducted on or within close proximity of the Metrolink Right of Way, please fill out a Temporary Right of Entry Agreement and submit the agreement and required fees to the Right of Way Coordinator (contact information listed below). Your cooperation helps ensure a safe and effective operating environment for everyone.
