Caltrain Begins Construction on Bayshore Station Overpass

On Tuesday, July 5, work on Caltrain’s Bayshore Station Overpass Rehabilitation Project will begin. This project will ensure the overpass remains safe and functional for years to come.

Work in July will include setting up a temporary containment system that will allow the use of the pedestrian bridge, station, and train tracks at all times and protect passengers and the community from dust, and debris from construction activities. This project will remove and replace the coating on the station’s pedestrian bridge and stairwells. Construction is expected to begin the first week of August, including sand blasting, washing, and painting from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The project is expected to be completed by November of this year.

The overpass will remain open to pedestrians during construction, with half the walkway under construction at a time. The $6.87 million project is made possible through a combination of state and San Francisco Prop K funds.
