While Glendale and Metrolink completed work months ago on the Jewel City's side of the Broadway/Brazil Street crossing, Los Angeles officials said that city's work on its own side of the crossing may not be done until summer 2014 due to funding snags, according to a Sept. 1 report to the California Public Utilities Commission, which is overseeing the project.

A railroad crossing at the border between Glendale and Los Angeles could remain closed for nearly another year after Glendale, Los Angeles and Metrolink officials ditched plans to reopen the crossing during construction lulls.

While Glendale and Metrolink completed work months ago on the Jewel City's side of the Broadway/Brazil Street crossing, Los Angeles officials said that city's work on its own side of the crossing may not be done until next summer due to funding snags, according to a Sept. 1 report to the California Public Utilities Commission, which is overseeing the multi-agency project.
