The move is necessary to construct the grade separation that will elevate the Caltrain tracks over San Bruno, San Mateo and Angus avenues. The temporary station is located just south of and adjacent to the current station.
Train service will not be affected by the move. Tickets may be purchased at ticket vending machines at the temporary station. For safety reasons, Caltrain asks that all passengers follow the directions given on posted signs, as well as those given by ambassadors at the station and conductors on board trains.
Construction on the future permanent station and the elevated structure will begin at the end of the year and is expected to be completed by fall 2012.
The $147 million San Bruno Grade Separation Project will improve safety for both motorists and pedestrians and reduce traffic congestion to and from Highway 101 in the City of San Bruno.
In addition to the new station, there will be a parking lot with 201 spaces and a “kiss and ride” lot. The project includes three pedestrian underpasses - one in the vicinity of Sylvan Avenue, one at the new station and another between Euclid Avenue and Walnut Street. Additionally, elevators will provide easy access for Caltrain customers. Streets and sidewalks, including those at Posy Park, also will be improved.
