Union Pacific/Metra West Line Improvements

Union Pacific Railroad’s Wes Lujan, Illinois’ Director of Public Affairs, will speak about the new pedestrian grade crossing system that is activated at eight stations along the Union Pacific West Line. The new system, called the Another Train Warning System (ATWS), is part of a $132 million project that aims to improve the flow of commuter and freight traffic on the heavily used line, as well as to allow trains to safely operate past a station when a commuter train is stopped there. Metra and Union Pacific studied station improvement initiatives across the country and the West Line safety safety system of any commuter rail operation in the United States. The ATWS uses audible and visual alerts to warn pedestrians at crossings near the stations that a second train is approaching or present. Improvements at the Glen Ellyn station will not only include the ATWS at Main Street and Park Boulevard but also new pedestrian paths to safely guide commuters away from the tracks to a gated crossing.
