They'll Be Working On the Railroad....

On Mon., Oct. 1, crews replace rail ties at the Belmont station. Other projects along the commuter rail will take place Sept. 29-Oct. 5.

Caltrain will perform routine maintenance at several locations throughout the Peninsula Sept. 29 to Oct. 5.

To avoid delays to passengers, the work will take place Saturday through Friday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. There will be some construction noise but Caltrain says crews will work as quietly as possible. For more information about this type of work, click here.

Construction Project:

San Bruno Grade Separation Project Day work, which includes digging with a backhoe and mini-excavator, will be done from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Crews will install utility infrastructure, place concrete panels using a crane, excavate, grade, and pour concrete. Crews will use medium and heavy duty diesel vehicles to transport dirt and concrete.

Night work will occur from Sunday, Sept. 30, through Friday, Oct. 5, between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. Crews will use a crane to place concrete panels. Lanes on San Mateo near San Bruno Avenue may be temporarily closed as needed. Traffic cones and flaggers will direct motorists and pedestrians around the affected areas.

The $147 million project will elevate the Caltrain tracks above three existing at-grade street crossings at San Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues.  A new elevated Caltrain station between San Bruno and San Mateo avenues will replace the station at Sylvan Avenue.
