Crews to Work Long Hours on Grade Separation Project This Week

Most of the work will take place overnight in an effort to continue raising the Caltrain tracks above San Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues.

Construction crews will be working long hours this week on the $147 million grade separation project underway to raise Caltrain tracks above three street crossings in San Bruno.

Some construction work will occur during the day this week, including digging, excavation and the installation of utility infrastructure.

However, most of the work will take place overnight—starting today at 11 p.m. and ending at 7 a.m. Tuesday—in the area of San Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues, according to Caltrain officials.

In addition to elevating the train tracks above street crossings in those spots, the project calls for building a new, elevated Caltrain station between San Bruno and San Mateo avenues that will replace the existing station on Sylvan Avenue.

Routine maintenance is also scheduled this week along the Caltrain tracks from San Francisco to Palo Alto. The work will take place between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Caltrain service won't be affected by any of the work, according to the transit agency.
