Temporary Closure at Glenwood Avenue Crossing

Temporary Closure at Glenwood Avenue Crossing

The railroad grade crossing at Glenwood Avenue in Menlo Park will be closed over one weekend for track maintenance work. The closure will be from Friday, April 21, at 8 p.m. until Monday, April 24, at 4 a.m.

Vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic will not be able to cross the tracks during this outage. During the closure, Caltrain will establish detour signs for pedestrians and motorists to help with traffic flow.  Neighbors may experience construction noise during this time.

The maintenance work will include the resurfacing and realignment of both tracks to maintain their state of good repair. New pavement and striping will also be included as a part of the maintenance work. These elements will provide a smoother, safer crossing for vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclist.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 60,000 average weekday riders. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
