Colton

Colton is a city in San Bernardino County, California, United States. The city is located in the Inland Empire region of the state and is approximately 57 miles east of Los Angeles. The population of Colton is 52,154 according to the 2010 census, up from 47,662 at the 2000 census.

Colton is the site of Colton Crossing, one of the busiest at-grade railroad crossings in the United States. This crossing is currently being replaced by a fly-over that will raise the east–west Union Pacific tracks over the north–south Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks. The Union Pacific's "Sunset Route" and the BNSF's "Northern Transcontinental Route" cross at this point. As traffic on each line has soared since the mid-1990s, fueled largely by the vast increase in imports passing through the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the primitive crossing has become a serious bottleneck. The crossing was installed in 1882 by the California Southern Railroad to cross the Southern Pacific Railroad’s tracks while building northward from San Diego.
