Due to significant reductions in ridership resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Caltrain is currently running reduced service which opens up more construction work windows. As the governor has deemed transportation construction as essential, Caltrain examined how the current situation allows for expedited construction to lessen overall project impacts on riders and the community.
The project found several components could move forward, including the building and "cut over" of the new elevated rail alignment. This work--originally scheduled for night and weekends--can now move forward during the day. Current circumstances also allowed for the accelerated removal of the southbound station platform (above picture). All trains are still servicing the station via the northbound platform.
Thank you to our dedicated crews and operators who continue to serve the community during this time.
