Caltrain is hosting an open house on the Burlingame Broadway Grade Separation Project that will improve safety and traffic flow, and reduce horn noise. The open house will include a brief presentation with an update on designs and schedule for the new vehicle, pedestrian and bike underpass and station.
Burlingame Broadway Grade Separation Project Open House

High traffic volumes at Burlingame’s Broadway grade crossing result in some of the worst traffic congestion in the region. A preferred design alternative was approved by the Burlingame City Council in 2017 for the project, which will separate the tracks from the street by partially raising the tracks and partially lowering the road.
This will improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists, reduce train gate down-time and horn noise, restore weekday service at Broadway Station and improve traffic flow. The project will also construct a new elevated Broadway Station with updated amenities that better serve the community.
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. 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.
