BKF provided civil design services for the feasibility study and design phases of a grade separation for the Orange County Gateway Program. The project had extensive coordination with the cities of Anaheim and Placentia, Orange County Transportation Authority, and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway. The grade separation accommodated two six-lane roadways that spanned over the railway and flood control channel. The project goals were to improve traffic operations, increase traffic and pedestrian safety, and reduce noise along the railway.
