Caltrain to hold community meeting for San Bruno grade separation

Written by 

Caltrain will hold a community meeting March 31 to present information about the San Bruno Grade Separation Project. The $165-million project will elevate the Caltrain tracks above San Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues. A new elevated train station between San Bruno and San Mateo avenues will replace the existing station. The project also includes three pedestrian underpasses, one near Sylvan Avenue, one at the new station and another between Euclid Avenue and Walnut Street.

The project will improve safety and reduce traffic congestion in the area. Improvements to downtown Posy Park also will enhance the entrance to the City.

Preliminary construction work on an underground culvert is expected to begin in May. Temporary train tracks will be built this coming winter and construction on the grade separation is expected to begin next spring.

The community meeting will provide detailed information about the project including a proposed construction timeline and computer-generated drawings. Staff will be on hand to answer questions.
