Balderrama Park Improvements

The City of Oceanside received Housing Related Parks (HRP) grant funding for improvements to Joe Balderrama Park. Community outreach meetings were conducted to identify and prioritize improvements to be included in the project. Proposed improvements include new play equipment on colorful impact resistant surfacing. Three new separate picnic areas will be constructed throughout the park. These will include shade structures, furnishings, barbecues and lighting. Old field lighting will be removed and replaced with new energy-efficient LED field lighting. New trees, landscaping and irrigation improvements will be added adjacent to the new play area between Puls Street and Higgins Street and adjacent to new picnic areas. Construction is scheduled from the beginning of May and through July 2019. The Community and Chavez Resource Centers as well as existing Parks and Recreation programs should be unaffected by the proposed construction. During construction existing playground equipment and most picnic areas will be removed and unavailable until construction is complete.

Railroad Safety Improvements (Quiet Zone)

Installation of pedestrian crossing gates and fencing at sidewalk crossing points. Upgrades of the railroad signal and communications system. New signage and longer medians at vehicle approached to the tracks. New secondary traffic signals at the Mission Avenue track approaches.

Project Manager: Gary Kellison (760) 435-5112

File No: CIP14-00013

The pace of the Quiet Zone construction is accelerating towards completion in May.  The City’s contractor is working multiple shifts and crossing locations for an on-time completion.

Scheduled trains will not be operating from Oceanside Station during the weekend of April 13-14 because of track work south of Oceanside.  The Quiet Zone contractor will be working night and day through the weekend to switch the railroad’s signal communications from the old to the new system.

The railroad operates critical safety warnings devices such as crossing gates and new traffic signals on Mission Avenue.  To make sure the new systems are working correctly, the City and its Quiet Zone contractor have scheduled a test train to operate more or less continuously through Oceanside beginning at 4:00 am on Sunday, April 14, and ending at midnight.  Because the Quiet Zone is not yet in effect, train horns will be sounding throughout the day each time a train approaches a road crossing.

When the construction is finished in May, a period of inspection by rail agencies begins.  The Oceanside Quiet Zone goes into effect after the railroad safety improvements achieve final approval.  The target date for the train horns to stop is the end of June.
