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.
