Project Scope

Caltrain, in coordination with the City of South San Francisco, is preparing to replace the existing South San Francisco Station with a new center boarding platform connecting to a pedestrian underpass. The project consists of track work, signal work, a new 700 foot center board platform with amenities and connectivity to a new pedestrian underpass from the platform to Grand Avenue/Industrial Way. The project improves safety by eliminating the hold out rule and will provide increased connectivity along Grand Avenue for the City of South San Francisco. The improvements will also make the station fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Project Background

Caltrain is preparing to replace the existing South San Francisco Station with a new center boarding platform connecting to a pedestrian underpass. The project consists of track work, signal work, a new 700 foot center board platform with amenities and connectivity to a new pedestrian underpass from the platform to Grand Avenue and Industrial Way. The project improves safety and will provide increased connectivity along Grand Avenue for the City of South San Francisco. The improvements will also make the station fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Construction is expected to be complete in Fall 2019.

Community Impacts During Construction

Work to complete the station improvements started in November 2017 and is expected to be finished in 2020.

 

To avoid impacting rail operations, some construction will take place during nights and weekends. Due to the nature of the construction, there will be temporary, localized noise impacts due to site clearing and construction activities.  

 

Public Involvement
Caltrain will be communicating with residents, businesses and other interested members of the public to discuss the project in more detail. Stakeholders will be provided with various opportunities to engage with the project team and learn more about the project.

 

For additional questions or concerns regarding construction activities, please call Caltrain Customer Service at 1.800.660.4281 or email or email ssfstation@caltrain.com.
