The at-grade crossing at Orchard Road was unsafe for motorists and for pedestrians using the Gilman Trail Bike Path, and delays were frequent as long freight trains crossed Orchard Road. BB&A constructed grade separation structures for both the railroad and pedestrian path while maintaining all traffic modes.
