San Carlos Pedestrian Access Impacts

May 15 to early June

May 15th to early June, pedestrians will be redirected to walk down a pathway north of the Caltrain station between the Depot and Building 7. Refer to illustration for new temporary pathway.

San Carlos Avenue crosswalks will remain open, except for a short period when an ADA ramp will be installed that will close the crosswalk on the south side.

Northbound and southbound train platforms will be accessible as well as the Transit Center for patrons who ride SamTrans.

Please pay attention to posted signage. We appreciate you cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience.

San Carlos Station Sidewalk Impacts

Jul. 30 to TBD

NOTICE: The contractor will be starting some of the utility tie-ins along the sidewalk facing El Camino Real that leads to the new parking lot. The sidewalk will close on Friday, August 3 in preparation for that work on Monday, August 6. Please follow posted signage for the paths of travel to the north and southbound platforms.

Starting Monday, July 30, Prometheus will be fencing off the lower area behind the San Carlos Station Depot to demo concrete in preparation to install pedestrian pavers. Phase 1 of this project will take about 4 weeks. ADA access and the main paths of travel to the north and southbound Caltrain platforms will not change.

During this closure all existing ADA accessible temp walkways will be maintained to ensure a safe pathway for all commuters and residents to and from the bus stop and parking lot, to the train station and also the San Carlos Ave intersection. In addition to that, now that the Cherry St intersection street lights are operational, there is now another safe path for commuters and residents to get from the bus stop and train station to San Carlos Downtown on Laurel St.
