Engineering & Construction provides general design oversight of all improvements (new construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance) within the Caltrain right of way.

Engineering & Construction also is responsible for maintenance of the infrastructure (signal, track and bridges), as well as all encroachment activities.

For proposed uses of Caltrain property that are longer than 6 months in duration (including utilities, commercial developments, community facilities, etc.) and that do not need a right-of-entry permit, Engineering - Third-Party Projects Group provides review of the proposed use only after it has been reviewed and approved as compatible with the railroad’s current and future needs per the Caltrain Rail Corridor Use Policy review.
