Two Crude Oil Trains a Day May Pass Through Dixon

by Dave Scholl 2 months ago, Categories:   Business, City+School, Local Life

Thumb_news-flash-oval-with-newspaper-and-inside-white-box Sacramento – The California State Senate this week passed Senate Joint Resolution 27 authored by Senator Alex Padilla (D-Pacoima), which calls on the federal government to take legislative and regulatory action to protect California communities from the threat of train accidents involving transportation of crude oil. Dixon is on the mainline of the Union Pacific, which will likely be a route for transporting much of the oil. Plans are to eventually run two trains with 90 oil tanker cars through Dixon every day. Mayor Jack Batchelor is promoting a "Century 21 Priority Development Area" to locate "affordable" multi-family housing on land adjacent to that Union Pacific mainline - which could create a high risk in case of derailment or oil spill. Currently there is only one residence within 200 feet of the mainline, and few commercial buildings as well. Read More
