Caltrain passengers now have access to the new grade-separated, elevated San Bruno Station. Since 2010, passengers have used a temporary boarding platform on Huntington Avenue near Sylvan Avenue. March 31 was the last day of service at that site, with the new station open a half-mile to the north at 833 San Mateo Avenue at San Bruno Avenue. Caltrain continues on the same schedule at the new station.
In May, Caltrain plans a community celebration in Posey Park to mark completion of the grade separation project, with local vendors and activities, speeches, and refreshments.
The $155 million grade separation project elevated Caltrain tracks at three separate crossings in San Bruno. The grade-separated crossings improve safety conditions for both pedestrians and motorists, while also easing traffic congestion to and from Highway 101.
The San Mateo County Transportation Authority provided $92.5 million for the safety improvement project, with the remaining funding coming from state and federal sources.
