Written by 

Work on a $2.8 million project to add additional signals to the Caltrain signal system will take place between 8 p.m., March 8 and 4 a.m., March 9 at Fair Oaks Lane in Atherton, Calif.

Caltrain will be reconstructing the pavement and track at three railroad crossings in the cities of Burlingame and San Mateo over the course of 10 weeks, beginning on March 12. The work will go from north to south, beginning at Peninsula Avenue, then going to Villa Terrace and finally Bellevue Avenue. The intersections will be closed during the construction period. For the reconstruction of Peninsula Avenue, the work will take place over the course of two full weekends, March 12-15 and March 19-22. During that time, traffic will be diverted onto Anita Road, Bayswater Avenue and California Drive.

March 7-11, crews will weld and repair switches on the tracks between the San Francisco and Belmont stations. March 8-11, crews will replace crossties on the tracks between the Millbrae and Hayward Park stations.

On March 7 crews will dump ballast along the tracks at various locations between Lawrence stations and San Jose Diridon stations. The ballast will be used for future maintenance projects. March 8-11, crews will resurface the tracks between the Santa Clara and Tamien stations. On March 7, crews will replace switch ties on the tracks near the San Jose Diridon station.
