Too sadly true.

Let's consider at-grade crossings on double and multi-track lines? Could all such crossings in California have been removed for only a fraction of the total price of all the Los Angeles freeways?

I would imagine that L.I.R.R upgrade (including the grade crossing removals) is costing only a fraction of what the New York state thruway cost in today's dollars.
